Artists in Action

Artists travel near and far to attend Palette Productions Pensacola art workshops. Some are eager to train under a renowned artist; others are excited to learn a new technique and explore outside of their creative comfort zones.  Many are drawn to the added benefit of Pensacola’s beautiful beaches and everything Pensacola has to offer. All enjoy camaraderie with their fellow artists. This page is dedicated to our artist family, who make every workshop a success. We thank you and look forward to seeing you again! –Pat and Diane
