This 3.5 day workshop will focus on landscape plein-air painting. Students will have the opportunity to paint directly from nature. 
Participants can choose to either paint small sketches of different elements of the surrounding landscape or develop a multi-day

plein-air painting step by step.

The class will discuss composition, value, shape design, drawing, color, atmospheric perspective, painting techniques and materials for plein-air painting. Group demos and individual critiques will be provided.

In the event of rain, we will be indoors where we will work on master 
copies or students can further develop their plein-air sketches.
