Join me for a plein air painting workshop in the beautiful "Red Rock Country" of Sedona, Arizona, this fall! November is bright and sunny and colorful with fall foliage, and it's one of my favorite times of year. I'll take you to creeks and streams, cliffs with stunning red rock views and more. Each day starts with a talk on plein air painting principles and is followed by a field demonstration. Students the paint, and I go from easel to easel offering personal help. The day ends with a critique. The workshop runs from 9-1, so you have the afternoons free to paint with optional assignments or to explore the area with family and friends. All media and all levels welcome. For full details, visit www.PaintTheSouthwest.com
I've taught my Sedona program for ten years, and this will be my ONLY workshop in Sedona for the Fall 2017/Winter 2018 season, and my FINAL workshop there, as I am moving my studio to New Mexico.
