About the Exhibition:

Every Labor Day at the Yellow Barn Studio our instructors, students, and members celebrate Drawing and Water Based Media.  While the Yellow Barn is known for its classes in oil, watercolor, and acrylic painting; we understand the importance of drawing and how exceptional drawing skills lead to exceptional paintings.  This exhibition celebrates pencil, pastel, pen and ink, charcoal, and any medium used to make a line. In addition we have added water based media into the mix to support the many water color and gouache artists associated with the Friends of the Yellow Barn Studio.
