Behind the Scenes - Watercolor Society of Oregon and Menucha Workshop

Del Moore and Chris Stubbs 


















Gary Stubbs, Del Moore, Chris Stubbs and Dorothy Moore


















Chris Stubbs, her husband Gary, Del Moore and 
Dorothy Moore set up the lighting and camera for 
our WSO / Menucha Spring Workshop, May 15-19 2016. 
As instructor for this workshop, I offer many thanks.
This is just a glimpse of the "behind the scenes" effort 
that makes this workshop come to life. 
Thank you Del, Dorothy, Chris and Gary for your 
time and expertise.



Scott Crane





















Scott Crane, the program Director for Menucha
handled the sound system and the microphone.
For months prior to the workshop he
kept us on track. All the arrangements required 
to set up the main room, room reservations, and meals
were in place and ready for the eager artists 
arriving in May. He and Christine were also on hand to help
artists unload, if they needed assistance.
What a joy it was to have so many 
helping to make this workshop a success. 
Thank you!

Menucha Retreat Featured on Grant McOmie's Grant's Getaways on KGW
Almost 28 years ago, I attended Michael Schlicting's workshop 
at Menucha Retreat and Conference Center. 
Memories of that meaningful experience are still fresh in my mind.
Taking precious time to feed my artistic soul, surrounded by artists, 
became a delightful habit as I returned many years,
 often as a student and then as an instructor.
Join me at historical Menucha Retreat and Conference Center 
May 15-18 2016,
when I will be returning again to teach Stronger Design Before and After. 

March 7, Grant McOmie featured the history of Menucha, former 
summer home of Oregon's Senator Julius Meir. 
I have always enjoyed learning how this amazing retreat came to be 
and wanted to share it with you.Click link below:
