Shelburne Farms, Early Morning

Join me on a Watercolor Workshop in Central Park, NYC & Shelburne Farms, VT

Fri, Aug 1st, 2014


Summer is flying by and the weather has been perfect to paint on location! If you've been meaning to get out and haven't had the chance, there's still time left to enroll in one of my outdoor watercolor workshops this month. Painting en plein air at a scenic location is a pleasant way to spend a day and helps you to make significant strides in your art.

The wooded beauty of Central Park with its towering skyscrapers will provide the inspiration for my Outdoor Watercolor Workshop in Central Park, New York City. The workshop has been changed to a one-day session and will be held on Friday, August 15th. Click here for more information or to register now.

Shelburne Farms in partnership with the Shelburne Craft School will host my Lake Champlain Residential Watercolor Workshop on August 25 - August 29. Only a few spaces remain. It's reasonably priced at $1,075 for a five night stay at the lake-front lodge at Orchard Cove House in Shelburne Farms. It includes daily breakfast, lunch, one dinner and instruction. Click here to reserve a spot.

My Wednesday evening and Thursday morning classes at the Ridgewood Art Institute will resume in September.

Wishing you a wonderful summer and hope you'll be able to join me on a workshop!
