Students of all levels of experience are welcome to enjoy the fun of plein air painting using the vibrant colors of soft pastels or the fluidity of oil paints to create dramatic and expressive paintings. Paint the feeling of atmosphere in skies and clouds. Learn how to put variation in the multitude of greens in a landscape. Learn how to make water look wet and reflective. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the benefits of plein air painting and how working from life can improve their work.  Maria will present demonstrations and offer lots of personal attention. There will be lots of painting and creative time with other artists while enjoying the beauty of the natural landscape.

This workshop will take place on the grounds of Maria’s private family farm in Goshen, VA (a 30 minute drive from BSSS) – an excellent opportunity to paint somewhere new and exciting!  The location, materials list, and Maria’s cell phone will be provided to you upon registration.  Please let the office know if you want to carpool with other students so we can help arrange that!
