Leslie Toms Workshops in October
There are two very cool events coming up. The first one is Saturday, October 2nd from 2 to 5.
This is billed as the "Jesuit Art Event" to benefit Jesuit High School. It will be held at the Mahony Art Loft at 14th and R Streets from 2pm to 5pm. The event is free and there will be refreshments as well as art by many of Sacramento's most prominent artists. There will be art in the loft, in the halls as well as on the roof top patio. Parking is very easy on the streets surrounding but bring some quarters if you want to park at a metered space. Don't miss this one! This is one of those fabulous word-of-mouth events in a very cool building.
I'll be there with some of my work and hope to see you.
The second event is a workshop I am teaching at the Patris' S-12 Gallery located at 12th & S Streets. This is sure to be one of the most fun classes you will ever take . . the Cigar Box Painting Class. Each class concentrates on a different stage of creating these special treasures. You will be able to create as many as you like! Starts Friday, October 15 and continues on October 22 and 29 from 10 to noon. Following the class on November 13th we will have a Cigar Box Art Show and reception. Oil paints or acrylics are recommended for this workshop. Class fee is $95 which includes a cigar box that you choose from my private stash. A list of supplies will be provided
upon registration. For more information go to www.s12studios.com. This class is filling quickly and limited to 15.
Enjoy. Leslie Toms
