Take A Walk On The Creative Side: Geneseo Art League

Being a professional artist and day tripper, I am always looking for new workshops to enhance my skills. Finding a workshop in an interesting town is a plus! This summer I received an event announcement on Facebook from the Geneseo Art League and Gallery.  I was interested in the workshop that was done by a respected working artist, and it was excellent.

Geneseo is growing each year with interesting shops and businesses. The Geneseo Art League has been transformed in the last year and is in a new and larger location with plenty of space for exhibitions and workshops.

I found the instructor to be well prepared and very skilled. The workshop on pastels was a small group to allow for individual attention. The artist leading the workshop, Larry Westmorland, made it a memorable experience through his patience, knowledge and attention to detail. Every participant had success!

  1. Thanks to Deborah Doehler for an interesting and informative blog. We are a hop, skip and a jump from the Quad Cities yet light years away with our small town atmosphere. The Geneseo Art League loves artists, day trippers, shoppers, and browsers!
