"Feathered Friends" in Paper Clay with Rogene Mañas

Join mixed media artist and author, Rogene Mañas for a two-day paper clay/mixed media workshop, June 9-10, 2018. Rogene brings her unique style and creativity to the Knoll, and has taught in OR, CA and Mexico.  She authored the book:  Artful Paper Clay:Techniques for Adding Dimension to Your Art, and has been featured on Oregon's ART BEATAdd dimension to your work by creating bas-relief images with Creative Paperclay® on panels or canvases. This air-dried, paper maché clay, primarily used in doll and figurine making, can hold broad shapes as well as fine detail and adheres to just about anything. The first day you will learn to sculpt and carve the clay in bas relief, the second day you will learn to finish your piece with acrylic mediums, paints and collage materials. The result is a wood-carved effect that will leave people wondering how it was made. This unique and innovative process is fun, flexible and forgiving, making it perfect for beginning and advanced students alike.  $270. Contact for more information!  Class is filling fast so don't wait.  View more of Rogene's work and order her book on her website:

Ruth Armitage - Cold Wax & Oil workshop

Revel in texture and color in this workshop exploring the properties of Cold Wax Medium. If you’ve been hesitant to get into oil painting because of the slow drying time, this class will teach you a different tune. No fuss cleanup, little odor and layering magic will seduce participants.

Join Ruth Armitage for a workshop inspired by nature, but leaning toward the abstract using cold wax medium along with oil paints. Learn how to create your own medium, layer opaque and transparent pigments, incise, build up and more.

Participants will work on multiple wood panels over the course of the workshop, culminating in several finished pieces. Techniques will include different types of paint application, reductive and layering techniques, mark making, shape, color and texture galore.  Pre-planning and intuition will work hand-in-hand to lead artists to creative compositions.

An open and adventurous attitude and imagination are the only pre-requisites.

Abstracting the Landscape - Watercolor & Acrylic painters welcome!!

When painting the landscape, either from photos or plein air, what is our aim? We can take the point of view of showing something as accurately as possible, or we can paint how a view feels to us personally. This workshop will focus on the latter. Last year, while painting in France, I discovered just how much fun and freeing it is to paint how a landscape feels. This invariably leads to a more abstract viewpoint, but working from the standpoint of an emotional response, a painting can be expressed in many ways, from exaggerated color, or somewhat abstract, to completely non-objective. It all starts with an idea. Join me in this exploration. 

Because we’ll be in Oregon in February, we will be working mostly from photos or our imagination, however, weather permitting, we may get outside to work. For more information or to reserve your spot, contact or call 503-998-5833.

Tuition $325 for three full days.

Join me in my studio for…….

AN AMAZING SUMMER ART CAMP FOR YOUTH with Carrie Moore at Carrie Moore Studios.

I’ve been teaching adult and youth workshops in my studio for over 15 years.  Most recently, having moved to a new home and studio in the rolling hills for Oregon City, the space is large, and the project work we create with kids is unique, sometimes huge, fun, and exciting.

We will be working both in and out of doors, but mostly in the upstairs studio.

We will create in:


Take home projects will be many, and ALL the supplies are included in the fees.

I focus on teaching the basic elements of design.  We’ll sketch, do line drawings and so much more.  We’ll learn the basics of color theory, and explore the Principles of Design and how they are part of everything we see in our world around us!  We’ll play games, get to know new friends, make chalky messes, explore new and exciting ideas, and play while we learn.

Ages 8-14.  $200/per child
