2 Day Workshop

$295 Members, $325 Non-Members

"Ketch Up Y'awl", Bill Lane

"Lippett Park", Sam Allerton Green

Take your painting skills outside and learn the logistics of painting plein air with artists Sam Allerton Green and Bill Lane.  They will guide you through the fun (and frustrations) of working outside during this 2-day workshop. Painting locations TBD.

Medium: Any and all types. Sam will be painting in oils and Bill in watercolor but please paint in the medium that suits you best. This workshop is not about the medium, although they’ll address the nuances of oils and watercolors during their demos, it’s about painting outside!
