Urban Sketching Workshop with Don Colley and Paul Heaston, Boulder & Denver stores, October 7&8About Paul Heaston: Artist, illustrator, urban sketcher, painter, sculptor, and man about town.

I've been a correspondent for Urban Sketchers since (almost) the beginning, first from Bozeman, Montana, then from San Antonio, Texas (my hometown) and now from Denver, Colorado.

I received an MFA in painting from Montana State University in 2008 because I'd been there long enough and they acquiesced to my demand of a degree in exchange for my paying tuition and learning and stuff.
