Strathmore Paper Education

As the back to school season is getting under way, I just wanted to share that Dynasty has some events under way this school year.  We have partnered with Strathmore again this year to help out with their educational workshops this fall at college institutions around the country.  Dynasty has donated white round watercolor brushes for the hands-on workshops, which demonstrate Strathmore paper products and their versatility.  Artist and educator, Glenn Brill manages the educational program for Strathmore.

As a supporter to Strathmore in art education, we are proud to share more about their excellent product line and the artists that use their papers.  To find out more information, Strathmore has a wonderful blog and eNewsletter as well as some new products featured on their website.  They also have online workshops, like "Watercolor sketching and Journaling,"  which you can register for and take for free at your own pace.
