Gilcrease Workshops

Workshops at Gilcrease Museum Hey Oklahoma artists and Oklahoma neighbors, I am working on this project and could use your input. In an effort to bring top artists to Tulsa's Gilcrease Museum to teach painting, drawing, pastel workshops we thought we would poll the artistic community to see if this would fill a need for you. We know that many of you travel great distances to attend workshops in Scottsdale and Fredricksburg and points beyond and might enjoy bringing the artists to you for a change. If you would please respond to artistswaygallery@yahoo.com with the answers to the following questions we would appreciate it. We are willing to create this for you if you are willing to show up. Part of showing up is responding to this email. Oh, and as a side note, I will be teaching 2 workshops at Gilcrease coming up in February and another in April. Check out Gilcrease.org for info or write me. Now for the questionaire:

Information we need from you:NameAddressPhoneEmail addressMedium
1. Please list your top 3 preferences for workshops. You may write in a 4th that isn't on the list. The number one should be the artist from whom you would most like to take a workshop.
