WORKSHOPS 2018

Landscape Weekend Workshop (August 17-19, 2018)

Are you looking to jump-start, develop or expand your landscape painting abilities? Learn how landscape artists layout their compositions, simplify what the eye sees, use a variety of brushes and stroke to communicate different foliage, the importance of shade, color, and tint in expressing planes and so much more. Don’t worry if none of that verbiage makes sense to you–it will after the workshop! We’ll break it down to the very basics.

Join us for a weekend dedicated fully to the artistry that goes into developing beautiful landscape paintings from start to finish!
