Are you looking to jump-start, develop or expand your landscape painting abilities? Learn how landscape artists layout their compositions, simplify what the eye sees, use a variety of brushes and stroke to communicate different foliage, the importance of shade, color, and tint in expressing planes and so much more. Don’t worry if none of that verbiage makes sense to you–it will after the workshop! We’ll break it down to the very basics.
Join us for a weekend dedicated fully to the artistry that goes into developing beautiful landscape paintings from start to finish!

Acrylic Paint- We recommend a set of Liquitex Basics for those just learning to use acrylics, or Heavy Body Professional acrylics for those who have experience with the medium.
Canvas- 2 canvases no larger than 12×16 no smaller than 8×10. 1 canvas no larger than 16×20 and no smaller than 12×16 (these can be boards, panels, or stretched canvas)
Palette Paper- Paper palette pad, paper plates or sta-wet palettes will all work
Suggested Supplies (Available for loan):
Paint Brushes- We have plenty at the studio you may borrow, however we recommend a basic set of your own, as it is always better to learn with your own tools.
Palette knife- recommended but not necessary
Water Jar with lid- Mason Jars or Talenti Gelato jars work great!
Water spray bottle- for the plein air session (to keep paints from drying out)
Easel- Tabletop easels or standing easels, depending on how you prefer to work, we have both styles available for loan or purchase
