About Us

Founded in the Rogue Valley of southern Oregon in 1979 by Jacksonville artist Elaine Witteveen, Artist’s Workshop, now Artists’ Workshop of Southern Oregon, has grown to an organization with over 40 artists, working in a wide range of mediums.

Artist’s Workshop of Southern Oregon provides an opportunity for members interested in plein-air painting to meet weekly at “paint-outs”, weather permitting, at locations throughout the Rogue Valley. Indoor drawing and painting sessions, with an opportunity to work from a model, are available for those artists who are not interested in plein-air painting.

Each August, Artist’s Workshop of Southern Oregon holds its annual art show and sale. The show is open to all members.

Membership is open to artists of all levels of artistic ability/development. Click on the link below for Membership Registration form.
