These workshops are intended for artists of all levels who have some experience in watercolor and would like to further their interest in painting and designing the landscape. Some workshops meet outdoors and some indoors. Others are a combination of both. With indoor classes we paint from out photos and sketches and the outdoor sessions are directly from nature. There are daily painting demonstrations, lectures, individual instruction and group critiques. Participants are responsible for their own art materials.
