We have conducted this seven day drawing and painting workshop since 1995. The subject matter of our visual interpretations is primarily the rice terraces of Bali, Indonesia. We have been able to record the plant's life cycle from planting to harvest every year. We explore the aesthetics of the individual plant and its environment through analysis of form and color. Translations are executed in oil pastels, gouache, and pencil.

Every year the accommodations have been in the 17th century Balinese palace, Puri Anyar, in Kerambitan This palace is still maintained by the original family. Dhr. Rai Giri Gunadhi, of the royal family, has offered this rare opportunity to stay in the palace while studying the form and color of his country's rice terraces. This is clearly an event in which everyone grows both visually, as well as, culturally. Visit the Bali Cyber Exhibit at http://cscwww.cats.ohiou.edu/bali/exhibit/ in this site to see the terraces, the results, and the accommodations from years past.

Enrollment is limited to 5 participants per workshop
