“This outdoor painting workshop will be primarily in oil, however students are welcome to work in other mediums. Students will be helped in setting up to paint, and encouraged to work independently, with group critiques twice daily. Lois Dodd will be joining the class towards the end of the week for painting alongside them, and group critiques.”
