The workshop is for all skill levels from beginner to professional. We will work outside on location, weather permitting, starting, and completing both a morning and an afternoon session. In case of inclement weather indoor studio space will be provided. A material list will be provided.

Chris will start the workshop with a quick demonstration highlighting processes and techniques of plein air painting and then students will get started on their pieces. The focus generally and individually is on helping students improve from their current skill level to the next. We will touch on all aspects of painting outside: from choosing subject matter, composition, value, color mixing and application. Individual attention is given to each student as he circulates to everyone at their easel throughout the day.

All you will need to bring is a great attitude, a desire to learn to paint from nature.
Space is limited to 15, so sign up early.
