In May 2016 we had the privilege of hosting the talented artist, Suchitra Bhosle. Fourteen artists attended the three day workshop. Everyone loved watching her demonstrate both still life and portrait painting. The students enjoyed painting our live models each afternoon and implementing new techniques learned from Suchitra. A GREAT time was had by all and many memories and new friends were made! http://suchitrabhosle.com

Bide-A-While will host a workshop conducted by The Pastel Society of Southwest Texas (TSST), featuring Barbara Jaenicke, as instructor. Workshop dates: September 30- October 3, 2015.
Bide-A-While was recently featured in Coast Magazine and we are so excited to share the wonderful article. Please check out the link!
Such a fun and talented group of ladies!
A big thanks to Carol Marine for taking and sharing these pictures from the workshop.
We are looking forward to Carol Marine’s return next month. We are hosting an advanced workshop May 5-9, 2014. Most of the past participants will be returning along with several newcomers. The worksop will begin with a welcome reception on Sunday evening, followed by five days of demos and instruction. One of the evenings we will be dining out and touring art galleries in the Historic Strand District of Galveston, TX.
There will be two “spa” evenings in which the participants may choose to get a massage. All of Carol’s students may either paint in the evening or simply enjoy visiting on the decks.
We are so looking forward to this workshop!
It’s almost done! We’ve been renovating an old potting shed and turning it into a great new guest house. The exterior is clad with reclaimed tin and vintage stained glass windows. The interior features antique beds and full bath/shower.
