A Timeless Legacy: Peace Park 2018 Series
Unraveling the Mystery of Plein Air Painting - Glacier National Park

John Huges
 Printable Registration Form

Monday - Wednesday, June 18-20, 2018
9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Experience Level: Advanced-Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Painters welcome.

The purpose of this workshop is to take the mystery out of plein air painting, by focusing students’ attention on two key principles of painting -- the way light behaves in nature and 12 design basics. That, coupled with what John calls “The Painter’s Tool Box of Expression” will form the core of this three day experience.  The first day will be in the form of a lecture, power-point presentation and painting demonstration. The last two days will be spent in the field painting the Glacier National Park area, where students will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge they gained on the first day. John’s approach to teaching is fun and informal, with plenty of one on one help.

Cost for 3-day workshop: Members/$324, Non-members/$360

A Timeless Legacy: Peace Park 2018 Series
Plein Air Painting: Glacier National Park Region

Lori Putnam
 Printable Registration Form

Monday - Wednesday, Aug. 6-8, 2018
9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Experience Level: Advanced-Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Painters welcome.

Lori Putnam’s paintings are a personal and genuine response to her subject, and she encourages and teaches her students how to do the same. She believes that each artist sees differently and finds his or her own, distinctive mark. Yet letting go of formulas and finding the confidence to express ourselves honestly seems difficult, sometimes even fearful. Students will leave this workshop excited; ready to experiment more on their own; and, above all, pointed toward meaningful, personal, artistic growth.

Participants will receive a free copy of Putnam's booklet "Plein air, Right from the Start." The workshop will include lectures and demonstrations; individual painting time; personalized instruction (perfect for advanced beginners, intermediate and advanced painters); and group discussions aimed to promote your progress. While demonstrations and advice on technique will be geared toward oil painters, artists who are more comfortable working in other mediums are welcome. Plein air experience strongly recommended.

Cost: Members/$540, Non-members/$600
