Morro Bay Art Association proudly presents a 6-week sketchbook workshop with artist, Sarah A. Pletts.

In this 6-week course, students will learn the art of filling a large sketchbook with images and writing. Dreams, photographs, ideas, and more will be part of the creative process. We will work from prompts (optional) sent out before we start and as we go.

About Instructor:  Sarah Pletts paints, writes, instructs, performs and produces dance/theatre for stage and screen. Her career began at 14 in the Miami Ballet Company. Then she went to Pratt Institute in NYC for fine arts and dance. Her visual art is in collections in the U.S. and Europe and she has illustrated for many publications including Scholastic Magazine, Macmillan, and the Audubon Field Guides. Her focus on words and images led to writing and producing an Off-Broadway play, “HENRI’S LETTERS," about the Matisse legacy. Other performances include the RAI2 television in Italy, dancing with Native American tribes, opening the 2002 Olympics, and “TREEtime” in the Teatro National de Nice, France. Her poetry ranked finalist for the Colorado Book Award, and she is currently writing the libretto, “ARTHUR’S MOTHER.” She directs the Sarah Pletts Dance Theatre, Ltd. - a 39-year international non-profit organization. The SPDT receives grants from world-wide organizations i.e. Siemens AG, ABN-AMRO Bank-Monaco, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Her creativity is about beauty, cross-cultural issues and man’s interrelationship with Nature.
