Artist Annie Hejny creates abstract paintings with honorably-harvested water and sediment from her home state of Minnesota.

Hejny’s paintings are currently hung at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona. Her reflective, hands-on workshop includes instruction in Annie’s unique process, with each student creating an individual 12″ x 12″ painting.

The workshop at UWL is open to students currently enrolled in painting, with space available for others on a first-come, first-served basis. All are welcome to visit and observe.

The workshop is made possible from funding through the UWL Department of Art and College of Liberal Studies.
