Painting Spring Blossoms in Watercolor will be held on Friday, April 22nd at Skylands Manor

"Painting in the Open Air" 2016

Tue, Apr 5th, 2016


The calendar says it's spring (although the past few days have felt more like winter) so it's the perfect time to get out and paint en Plein Air again. "Painting in the open air" is a great way to appreciate nature while improving your watercolor skills. I'm hosting three upcoming Plein Air watercolor workshops that I'd like to invite you to attend.

Painting Spring Blossoms in Watercolor will be held on Friday, April 22nd from 8:30 am - 12:00 pm at Skylands Manor (also known as the New Jersey State Botanical Gardens) in Ringwood, NJ. This workshop will will focus on the unique shapes and colors of the spring landscape.

Join me on Friday, June 17th for Painting Summer Greens & Trees in Watercolor from 8:30 am - 12:00 pm at Ringwood Manor State Park in Northern NJ. This one-day workshop will focus on landscape composition and how to paint trees in all their glorious variations of green. Tuition for either of these workshops will be $40.

The Shelburne Craft School will host An Exploration in Watercolor with Joel Popadics - A Tour of Shelburne and Charlotte, Vermont on August 8th - August 12th. We'll explore Shelburne Farms, Lake Champlain, the Shelburne Ship Yard and Mount Philo State Park. The scenic landscapes will provide the subject and inspiration for our pictures. Tuition will be $625 ($562 for members) which will include admission fees and lunch each day. Click here to visit the Shelburne Craft School's website for more information.

All levels of ability are welcome in my workshops. Enrollment is limited, so sign up early. Click here for more information and to enroll now.
