6th Annual Art, Wine & Beer Walk

Artist: Wanyi Lao

We're delighted to be part of the 6th Annual Art, Wine & Beer Walk on Saturday, May 12th. You can buy tickets right here at aRt Cottage or click here to buy them online.


Our May exhibit features wonderful work from art students at Diablo Valley College - come support our burgeoning artists!

Take a class with Mark Jezierny


Every year, we're honored to highlight work from Mark's students in the Mt. Diablo Adult Education workshops. His next general workshop begins on April 23, 2018 for 9 weeks on Monday nights:
Think of this class as private lessons in a group setting! It's for anyone interested in drawing and/or painting. It's for those who have never taken an art course or who feel that they are lacking in the fundamentals of various art applications. It's for the experienced artist who would like guidance or wants to take their art to the next level. All media welcome. You will develop your own style and choose subject matter ranging from abstraction to realism. Supplies and materials will be discussed at first class.
Mark also teaches "Fundamentals Of Painting - Landscape And Portraits - Oil And Acrylic." If you haven't taken one of his classes - we highly recommend it!
