Each morning will start with a demo. Students will then paint in the garden areas and receive individual attention. Students will create plein air studies using smaller panels that can be used as reference material for creating a larger studio painting.

Plein air painting is the fastest growing area of art happening across the globe.

There are more plein air painters now than ever before. Art lovers and art buyers are also taking up plein air painting. If you enjoy painting and also love being outdoors this is an opportunity to do both in our beautiful Garden.
