Are you interested in teaching a workshop at Gallery Fifty-Five? Gallery Fifty-Five, located in the heart of downtown McCall on Payette Lake, is a beautiful location for a workshop. Space is limited to four students inside, but in the summer you can use the back porch and, weather permitting, the grassy area by the lake. The gallery is especially well-suited for plein air painting, providing plenty of opportunity for students to explore McCall and the lake scenery within walking distance. We have tables and chairs, or you may provide your own. Gallery Fifty-Five workshops are advertised in online calendars, social media, our newsletter and on our website.
