This plein air workshop is for all skill levels from beginner to advanced.

Painting is a way of interpreting the beauty that surrounds us. Good painters are able to capture the essence of that beauty in a painting. First, we must learn the basics and become proficient in the processes of painting. The goal of this workshop will be to learn to develop the necessary skills to create better paintings and to nurture each student’s unique approach; to help them to learn new ways of working while they develop their own personal interpretation of the landscape.
