2018 Plein Air Workshops

I'm pleased to be teaching two plein air workshops later this year. Below are the dates, locations and links.

Dakota Art - Mt. Vernon, WA, August 24th - 26th

This three day plein air workshops explores the varied landscape of the Skagit Valley, from sweeping agricultural fields to intimate waterways.


Artisan Santa Fe Art Expo - Santa Fe, NM, September 28th, 9am - 12pm

Fundamentals of Plein Air - This three-hour on-site workshop focuses on site selection, developing a strong composition and color harmony, as well as the “practical” concerns when working in oil out in the field. I will discuss my approach to plein air painting, color palette and demonstrate my approach to starting a painting. The rest of the session will have students painting directly from nature, with individual instruction. 

The American Southwest is truly one of my favorite places to paint. This class is part of the Art Expo, which is a wonderful event.
