Explore your inner artist in this contemporary workshop lead by the Quintero Brothers!

The workshop includes six 3-hour sessions in October, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons where participants will learn the basics of abstract drawing and composition, and eventually creating 3-dimensional sculpture using a material as simple as paper. What is even better is at the end your drawings and sculptures will be exhibited in the gallery for the remainder of the exhibition and on the Fall Colors Open Studios Tour! This workshop will be especially beneficial to Spanish speakers as neither of the instructors speak English, but have no fear, a translator will be present. This language barrier adds a wonderful cultural element as much of the communication with Camilo and Federico is visual/through art.

Camilo and Federico Gaitan Quintero are international artists from Colombia who exhibit their sculptures and paintings all over the world. These twins fell so much in love with Nevada County that they return for a visit every year. This year, they will be exhibiting at the COTG Plaza Gallery during the Open Studios Tour as well as teaching this workshop!
