Plein Air Workshop June 1 & 2


Friday evening: Lecture and demo at my South Minneapolis studio, 6:30-9:30 p.m. 
Saturday morning: Outdoor painting session, 8:30-11:30 a.m. 
Saturday afternoon: Outdoor painting session, 1:30-4:30 p.m.

All experience levels welcome.

Beginners will learn the basics of outdoor landscape painting, the gear required, and how make sense of a scene. You'll focus on how to start a small painting.

Intermediate students: Advance your plein air craft to the next level. Learn tips to create a greater sense of light and spatial distance. Explore how to choose more compelling vantage points and design strategies for how to compose a more dramatic picture.

Every workshop I teach is tailored to the participants, so each one is a little different depending on the group. When registering, please indicate your experience level and what you would like to work on, or call or email me and we can discuss your craft. What are your strengths and challenges as a painter?  How can I best help you expand your skills?

Past painting locations have been in the Lake Harriet area of Minneapolis. This June we will meet just outside the city—someplace where we can see some distance! 

  • Lecture + two painting sessions: $185
  • Saturday painting sessions only: $120
