This workshop is aimed at helping painters refine their personal technique in plein air. All media are welcome: watercolor, pastel, oils and acrylics. This is an intensive class, with morning and afternoon on-site painting sessions and lunch-time demos. Classes are kept small so every student gets the attention they deserve.

We’ll work on:

  • Plein air composition
  • Color theory
  • Accurate drawing
  • Mixing colors
  • Finding your own voice
  • Authentic brushwork
Morning session, 9 AM to noon.
Afternoon session, 1 PM-5 PM.

Students are expected to meet either on location or in studio promptly at those times. We will have a short lecture followed by one-on-one instruction each day. There will be a critique session during the last afternoon.
