    In this class, students will learn the building blocks for a successful landscape painting. We will go over what it takes to complete a strong finished piece from the first sketch to the final product. Whether you are beginning or have many paintings under your belt, your work will go to the next level and your confidence as an artist will go up. I will focus on four fundamentals that every painter must never leave: drawing, composition, color and brush strokes. I will offer my experience and skill set to kindly instruct and correct areas of weakness. If you struggle with any of these areas, or simply seek to strengthen your skills as a landscape artist, this class is for you!

    About the Instructor: Summer Spitsbergen

    From an early age, Summer Spitsbergen has been an adventurer, traveler, and explorer. She came into the world in true Old West style, being born on a ranch in the wilderness of Montana. Her Father, a ranch hand for the Broken O cattle company, and Mother welcomed Summer one early August morning at the ranch house in Augusta. After a short time, Summer and her family found themselves back in their native town of Pagosa Springs Colorado, where Summer developed some of her most fond childhood memories. Pagosa has been a continual source of inspiration, and a true Southwest influence for much of her work. After her Fathers construction company took them west to Bakersfield, California for a season, the family has returned back to Pagosa Springs--a delight to Summers heart.

    The discovery of her love for art was at a very young age, and as a native to the west she had a special connection to the vast and vibrant landscapes. Summer has caught a fire to use her gifts, and draw on this inspiration to fulfill the true purpose of her art--helping orphans. Being able to use her gift for a bigger vision is a driving factor that inspires her on a daily basis. It is funny to think that the landscapes of the southwest could touch the orphans of Asia and the Middle east, but with the commitment to see her success bless others, her paintings are truly changing lives.

    In 2012 Summer moved to sunny San Diego for a new season in her life. Living in various locations in the county gave fresh perspective and inspiration. The new city brought exciting subject matter, and she often found herself exploring the coastline throughout the county--from the cliffs of Point Loma to the amazing beachscapes of Encinitas, where she would sketch and paint.

    It was in San Diego that she met her husband, Daniel. The two were married in 2015, and a new adventure began, as she was awakened to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the ranching communities of southeast Oregon. Directly after marrying, Summer and her husband made their home on a beautiful working cattle ranch, where they are learning and designing systems of sustainable agriculture. The motivation behind this is their commitment for the establishment of sustainable farming practices on orphanages around the world, specifically in developing nations.

    Summer and Daniel have two young boys, Micah and Malachi. They are already learning the ropes and will soon be a top hand for the team as they continue to raise fullblood Wagyu beef cattle, and build a Missions Headquarters base, which they will be able to be replicated across the world.

    Grab a friend or come solo, and let's paint a Highland Cow! We'll create this whimsical cow's hair with a simple "squiggle" technique. I'll show you how to add an optional painted flower or hot-glue a "silk" flower onto the canvas for a cute touch, if you'd like! I'll provide a basic sketch for you on the 16x20 canvas. Looking forward to painting with you!

    Mandala is the spiritual journey.


    Mandalas are used in many Eastern spiritual traditions as a tool to aid meditation. In Western culture, mental health counselors often use mandalas as a form of stress relief, a tool for therapy, and meditative exercise.

    We will be making Independence Day Mandala on 8x10" white canvas by using American flag colors.

    This class is suitable for beginners through advanced, adults and youth ages ten and up.



    My name is Skirma. I am a Marketing and Psychology professional, but also found my passion in painting and started applying it to my therapies.


    This time I invite you to slow down after all the Christmas activities and spend some time focusing on your feelings, relax and paint your Mandala.

    In my early teenage years, I found psychology incredibly interesting and it explains my passion for helping people, training, consulting, and coaching them.

    I have been helping people in different parts of the world; Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, the UK, Denmark, Lithuania, Ukraine, and USA.

    Originally, I am from Lithuania, but now, I and my family live in NY. We love spending time in nature so we are blessed to have this opportunity to come and spend some time in John Day, Oregon.
