    Plein Air:

    Inside-Out or Outside-In,

    because who knows what the weather will do in


    February 24-26, 2022

    (Thursday, Friday, Saturday)



    Students will experience a fun-filled, guided, hands-on learning experience with me in Spring, just north of Houston, Texas. Students receive instruction on principles of painting ranging from drawing, color, value, composition, color theory, and SO MUCH MORE. Every day, you will apply what is being taught by getting to your easel. In addition, you will see demos and receive one-on-one instruction throughout the workshop.

    As we learned with 2021's “snowmageddon,” weatherwise, February can be a crapshoot.

    Typically, I’m cutting back my roses in February. Still, we will take full advantage of our

    Texas winter and prepare ourselves for the plein air month by learning new tools to put in our painter’s toolbox.

    Weather permitting, we will step outside and explore how to use outdoor still life setups

    to make us better observers of natural light. Weather not permitting?! Never fear; you

    are in good hands to learn some new and applicable skills.
