Memoir Writing with Justin Rogers


Following New Years’ Celebrations, and more importantly New Years’ Resolutions, the Hill Country Arts Foundation is hosting a two-day writing intensive Memoir Writing Workshop. The instructor, Justin Rogers, shares tips on the elements of memoir, narrative strategies, finding your own writing topics, and dispelling the confusion over creativity and the truth-telling implied in memoir writing. He will also help you become more confident in your writing while also explaining how to write your story to share with readers.

Furthermore, this workshop wishes to take the writer wherever they are in thinking about memoir writing and increasing their knowledge of the genre and craft. Justin Rogers says, “The holidays, for me, are always a time for reflection over the past year. Not only are you making new memories with friends and family, you also have a quiet moment to think about the past year. If you are anything like me, that means you want to write it down somehow and make a resolution to write it all down. Let us take up this energy and harness it early before it fades away.”

Justin Rogers is a resident of Kerrville who got his BA in English from Schreiner University and just returned from New Mexico where he finished his Masters in English at New Mexico Highlands University. He is currently pursuing his doctoral degree in English at Texas A&M. He has taught writing workshops before at HCAF and a writing retreat at Mo Ranch.

(Sat. – Sun.) January 5 & 6, 2019 (9am-3pm)
Tuition: $100 for HCAF Members & $120 for Non-Members

Landscape Workshop — Painting from the Head and Heart
with Roger Parsons


This oil painting workshop will focus on:  Color Mixing (value & hue) using cool and warm colors, and Composition issues.  This is an opportunity to explore and experiment to find a process that makes sense to you, and ultimately, a process that allows you to express your passion for what you see.  We need the intellectual/analytical side [our Head], to express the passionate side [our heart].  Roger will demonstrate different painting approaches with still life, and he’ll demonstrate his approach to landscape.  If you’ve taken from Roger before, you know he explains all aspects of his decision-making — composition, color, and more; why he put a bush there?….why is the tree that size? …and why did he use ultramarine blue instead of cobalt, or quinacridone red instead of alizarin?  Students will receive individual help.

(Sat – Sun) Feb 23-24, and Mar 2-3, 2019 (9am – 4pm)

Tuition: $300 for HCAF Members & $340 for Non-Members
