ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
While being around the wineries, he got swept up in the romantic California wine scene, started making wine, won awards and then ran his own winery and vineyard for the next 21 years while a freelance artist in the North Bay. While always the struggling artist he has been teaching 25 years; a variety of college art classes, photography, history, viticultural science and from his own vineyard of 31 varieties of grapes – wine making classes. He also has been a Wine Educator at Robert Mondavi Winery for 13 years and the Head Brewer at Mt. St. Helena Brewery for a year.
Every Wednesday for the last 10 years he has painted with his plein air group of friends. In his paintings (pastel, oil or watercolor) Channing has always felt the expressiveness and emotional need for color in his art. Simply stated “an artist must remain in touch with his inner child – that wonderful quality of enthusiasm with day to day life and be able express it in his work.” He describes his work as “California Impressionist/Fauvist/Realist/Subject-to-Change-ish.”
