Participants will complete two wildlife paintings of different bird species in the class, each with a corresponding botanical. Justis will demonstrate the painting process as participants paint along.

On Friday evening, Justis will host a “mixer” at her downtown art studio where participants will get to mingle, see the art studio and gallery, and relax.  Light snacks and wine will be available.

In the workshop, participants will learn how to manipulate negative space to create form, basic composition elements, how to create depth and mix oil colors, use complimentary colors to create pop and proper brush technique to create realistic feathers, petals, and so much more.

Two lucky participants will get to go home with one of Justis’ original works.

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
