    I will be teaching a workshop on perspective at the Rox Art Gallery in Littleton (Aspen Grove Shopping Center) on Saturday, November 6 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.  It is limited to 10 students and will cost $40. Go to Roxartsgallery.com and click on classes to register.

    If you have questions, call me at 602-284-8425.

    I will provide paper and notes so just bring a pencil and a straight edge. You can bring a sack lunch or visit a nearby restaurant at the lunch break. We will do examples of one point, two point and three point perspective and play with a fish eye view for fun. Reflections, viewpoints and avoidance of common errors will also be covered.

    I want to thank Sandy Day Selbert and her workshop team for putting on an excellent workshop, with Stephen Quiller. It was very well done and I enjoyed every minute, as well as finally meeting some of you. Of course, thanks to Mr. Quiller for a most enlightening 3 days and for giving us the opportunity to watch magic happen at the hand of an absolute master. Truly a great experience. —Doug Moench
