2023 Workshop
June 2-3
American Fork, Utah

Skill level: All levels welcome

About this class:

This two day workshop will focus on painting landscape studies from life and learning how to simplifying shapes and values while in the field. 

Workshop will include:

  • classroom instruction 

  • Painting outside (en plein air)

  • Demonstrations

Time spent painting outside will be in northern Utah County. There may be a little walking involved so having proper shoes and easily portable equipment will be important.
