Nothing compares to learning along side passionate artists of all levels of skill. Whether you are a complete beginner to Oil Painting or have painted for years, this workshop has much to offer. We will take you from where you are artistically and push you to see in new ways and grow in your understanding and abilities of capturing the landscape on canvas. (While, I will be teaching using Oil paint, if Acrylic is your preferred medium, the techniques and teaching will apply for both Oil and Acrylic)

We will have engaging live painting demonstrations, detailed explanation of processes and color mixing and put all of what we learn to direct use painting outside with beautiful mountain vistas. We will have a mixture of some indoor painting instruction at a large hilltop home along with most instruction taking place outside on location. You will be refreshed simply getting out and painting!
