MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS:

Bambi Rogers

Watercolor Artist Bambi Rogers devotes her love of painting to the Georgia Landscape. She is known for her soft impressionistic landscapes.
Bambi’s love of art began early in childhood and was influenced by artists in her family. She then followed the family tradition to Carnegie Mellow University and later to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
Having pained in all mediums, Bambi returns to watercolor as her first love. She remains fascinated by the challenges of watercolor’s unpredictable nature, and the amazing affects of the pigments in water.
Bambi is a member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, and the Georgia Watercolor Society. Her participation in exhibitions and plain air events has won her several awards. She says painting with other artists fuels her creativity. She gives back by teaching watercolor workshops for beginners and experienced painters.

Peter Potter

As a child growing up in a prominent Boston family, Peter enjoyed the company of artists, writers, musicians, actors and politicians. After his tour in the Marines, he taught art at Wiliam Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. His oil and watercolor paintings adorn the walls of many collectors through his affiliation with galleries along the Gulf Coast. He has won numerous awards and recognition through participation in exhibitions and plain air events.
Although he has painted portraits, signs, and murals his whole life, what Peter loves most is being outside painting the landscape.
And now, having painted all over the world, Peter now enjoys retirement in Concord, Georgia where he paints daily. He mentors other artists, teaches workshops and is active in his community.
