For those joining us to celebrate AFC's 25th anniversary for our first ever Alaska Nature & Art Cruise, we are excited to be hosting a special workshop demo-series with four of our esteemed AFC Members, during the three days we’re at sea. We're thrilled to have Kitty Harvill, Emily Lozeron, Suzie Seerey-Lester, and Gregory Wellman. These intimate and interactive workshops (2 - 2.5hrs each) do not require any equipment or supplies, though you are encouraged to bring your sketchpad, notepad and camera. For artists of all skill-levels or anyone interested in seeing masters at work. 

The workshops have been scheduled during time at-sea to minimize conflict with other activities. Don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to see each of these amazing artists work up-close.

Emily Lozeron

Featured Artist

Emily Lozeron is an accomplished nature and landscape artist from Northern Alberta. She enjoys being out in nature and hopes to bring nature to people through her artwork.  She does not want to paint the “beautiful” things but strives to show the beauty in the imperfect.  The rusty barbwire, the broken window, the shedding of a winter coat or the fallen tree. As part of giving back to this great community, Emily has donated artwork to support great organizations such as the SPCA, Grande Prairie Art Gallery, and several community events.
