SEAVIEW, Wash. — As part of its fall and winter workshop series, the Sou’wester Lodge (3728 J Place, Seaview, Washington) is offering three workshops the weekend of Nov. 25 and 26 ranging from art projects to cultivating calm. Hot coffee and tea will be provided in the lodge during each class.

RSVP via souwesterfrontdesk@gmail.com, or call 360-642-2542. Check out souwesterlodge.com/calendar to see the entire schedule of more than 28 artist-led workshops.


Sumi ink


Heather McLaughlin, who manages the printmaking studio at Pacific Northwest College of Art, will teach a drawing workshop focusing on observational drawing with sumi ink.

The class, titled “Drawing as Seeing & the Acceptance of Chaos,” will be held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25.

Whereas pencils and pens lend themselves to contours and patterns, sumi ink captures light and shapes.

During this four-hour workshop, students will complete small drawings. We will cover techniques for recording scale, light and shapes while practicing plein air drawing skills and increase our understanding of the medium.

The cost is $40, plus a $10 material fee paid to the instructor. This workshop is for adults. Up to 12 students will be admitted.

Wear clothes that you will be comfortable in outdoors and that you do not mind getting art materials on. Bring a sack lunch and/or snack.


Calm life


Jason Tschimperle, the proprietor of Mamook Wellness at the lodge, will teach “Settle Your World: Self Empowering Techniques for Fostering a Calm Life in a Wild World” 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25.

Through self-study, meditation, breath work, Emotional Freedom Technique and down-to-earth talk, Tschimperle will guide the class as participants make a plan for creating more calm and living freer in the wilderness of humanity.

Tschimperle is an educator, meditation instructor, sound healer and therapeutic bodyworker.

The cost is $40. This workshop is for adults, eight students max.

Wear comfortable clothing. Bring a notebook and a sack lunch and/or snack.


‘Put A Bird On It’


In “Cut It Up Art Card Party: ‘Put A Bird On It’ with Mark Elliott,” to be held 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 26, participants will create unique art cards with birds on them using images, shapes and colors cut from a large selection and variety of magazines.

We’ll provide the art supplies, you bring a good supply of creative enthusiasm. Elliott will happily help and answer any questions.

Arrive anytime and come for just a bit or stay for the full workshop.

Elliott has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Cincinnati and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Oregon State University. He has been birding for 35 years.

There is a suggested donation of $5 per person or $10 per family. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. The workshop is for adults, but children with parents are welcome.

Bring a snack if you’d like.
