— Ticonderoga artists will share their talents with interested people this summer during a series of oil painting workshops.

Joan Pulling and Stella Dwyer will instruct interested people Saturdays, July 13 and 20, on the Hancock House lawn 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Both sessions are free and open to the public.

The workshops are aimed at high school students and adults. Registration is required. Some supplies will be available.

“Please call me directly at 585-6312 to reserve your place and discuss your art supply needs,” Pulling said. “I’m happy to answer any questions and always ready to encourage you to join us.”

The program will allow participants to start a painting at the first class and complete it at the second.

“Those wishing to use acrylics or water-based oils are free to do so,” Dwyer said. “Joan and I will provide instruction during the workshops and will offer a step-by-step sheet as a take-away guide to assist people at home.”

Pulling and Dwyer are both working artists at the Ti Arts Gallery, located in the Hancock House at 6 Moses Circle in Ticonderoga.

Ti Arts will sponsor workshops with support from Stewarts Shops and the Ticonderoga Historical Society.

Ticonderoga Arts is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to advancing artistic and cultural activities through education and interpretation as well as supporting local artists through exhibition and sales in their gallery.

Now in its sixth year, Ti Arts has developed into a full-fledged arts organization with a gallery in the lower level of the Hancock House. It collaborates with the Heritage Museum in its children’s summer workshops and hosts the children’s art show at the Ti Arts Gallery at the end of the season. Ti Arts also provides an annual scholarship award to an art student at Ticonderoga High School.

Ticonderoga Arts Gallery is open Thursday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
