    I’m excited to share that beginning September 6, 2023, I’ll be mentoring artists with Mastrius, a creative company that brings motivated artists together from all over the world to be trained and supported online in their creative talent. This will be a small group of 3 to 8 artists, and a navigator who will help to make our monthly online sessions run smoothly.

    Our mentorship group will dig into the technical aspect of painting through technique demos, art critiques, and much more! I’ll help boost your skill and confidence by developing homework tailored to your specific, personal goals. Between our monthly sessions you’ll work on the assignments, supported and encouraged by the artists in your group.

    This mentorship program is starting Wednesday, September 6, and will meet monthly thereafter on the first Wednesday of the month at 5PM MT, (4 PM PT, 6PM CT, 7 PM ET, 12 Midnight BST, 9 AM AEST). Sessions will be recorded for anyone unable to attend the live meeting. 

    To sign up for one of the 8 spots that are available or to get more information about Mastrius and my Mentoring Group go to Register now to reserve your spot and don’t worry, you’re not locked in & you can cancel at any time.

     I’d love to share what I’ve learned about art creativity and working as an artist over the years with you in this next stage of your creative journey.

    Waitlist Only as of 9/10: Write to Peggy to get on the waitlist.

    (Added: 8/18): My last in-person workshop for 2023 is unfolding during the final stretch of August...... specifically, from the 28th to the 31st. And guess what? Fate played a little game, and now there's a last-minute opening in the lineup. So, if you're up for capping off your summer with a bang, if spontaneity's your middle name, and if spending four unforgettable days in Taos sounds like your idea of a great time, dive into the workshop details in this newsletter. Give me a shout out and lock in your spot!


    Capture Taos’s legendary light during four days of plein air painting this summer.  Traveling from Peggy's studio you’ll paint at some of her favorite sites in a small class with plenty of individual attention and personally tailored instruction. This is an oil painting workshop and all levels of painters are welcome.

    The goal of this four-day plein air workshop is to help you develop a process for producing successful landscape paintings en plein air so that you can quickly capture your own vision on canvas. Each day we focus on one of the major skills needed for landscape painting and cover methods to adapt to the plein air environment. We’ll address composition, shapes, values, color, edges, brushwork, subject selection and atmospheric perspective. Daily demonstrations and lectures with accompanying handouts will be followed by painting and one on one critiques in the field where you will be able to practice these principles.

    From Anita:

    ARTISAN ART SUPPLY WEDNESDAY MORNING CLASSES:   Classes are in full swing.  Demonstrating  the four mediums of watermedia, pastel, oil and waterbased oils, Participants can paint in any medium and get help at the easel. We explore the basic elements of art and principles of design in creating paintings.  In addition to signing up for all 4 weeks, you can now choose which days you want to attend.  Sign up early as these fill up quickly.

    ARTISAN DRAWING WORKSHOP:  I will be teaching a three hour hands-on workshop in the basics of drawing.  Many of us missed the discipline of line, values, shapes and textures.  These BASICS were overlooked or dismissed as no longer needed.  In my experience of art making, I find the stronger the drawing is the better the result.  Even with abstract work, decisive mark making is essential.

    ARTISTIC LICENSE GALLERY IN ELDORADO :  Come and see my art work here.  I will be working a few hours each month.  Just check with me if you want to meet me there.  We are located in the Agora shopping center near the Agora Market.     

    SHOW AT ELDORADO LIBRARY:  I have my work at the public library for the month of August.  

    ALAMOGORDO 3 DAY PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP  OCTOBER 12,13 & 14, 2023.  This is a wonderful opportunity to paint White Sands, and desert and mountains in one location. I have been drawn to this area many times.  The workshop has a limit of 10 participants and will fill quickly. To sign up  send a message to Janet Amtmann  here.

    RAILYARD ARTISAN MARKET:  Sundays and Tuesdays at the Farmers Market  I will be showing and selling my work at this market as space open up.  I am looking forward to showing and selling  my new work.  

    I look forward to seeing you soon and renewing our mutual art journey.

    HERE IS A DEMO PAINTING I did in a student mentoring session recently. If you are interested in improving your sky painting, I am offering a second "Clouds and Sky In the Landscape" painting class beginning July 7 (the first class filled quickly so I decided to offer a second one).

    The class meets from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Fridays, July 7 - August 25 in my Albuquerque studio. The cost is $350.

    The summer monsoon is a perfect time to paint the sky in New Mexico. This 8-week oil painting class will introduce students to the relationship between the sky and ground and explore ways to impart luminosity in skies, strengthen compositions through effective placement of cloud shapes, and enhance mood with creative use of color. Some observational time will be spent outside. Sessions will meet in my Albuquerque studio in the northeast heights, and class size is limited to six so each student receives adequate attention. It is advised that students who take this class have a grasp of art fundamentals and some experience working with oils.

    For more information and to register, contact me at, 505-323-2246 or visit my website:

    I hope you can make it. This is a fun and informative class!

    Thanks for your time!"
