Draw Outside!

April 14, 2016

May is around the corner, and it is time to sign up for a plein air workshop or class. The Manakintowne Workshop at the Springs will be May 14 and the May Mornings classes will be held on Thursday mornings in May. Details for both are given below. If you are interested, contact me here (through the comment feature), through Facebook, or any other way you might know!





Saturday, May 14,  9:30 AM – 3:30 PM 


Enjoy a day in the country drawing en plein air with oil pastels at historic Huguenot Springs in Powhatan, the sister property of Manakintowne Farm. The site offers beautiful old shade trees and a mature garden filled with peonies and irises. Some previous drawing experience is helpful, but experience with oil pastel is not required. All drawing supplies are provided, making this a good opportunity to try out a new medium. Those continuing with oil pastel are welcome to bring their own drawing supplies, and experienced students may bring their preferred medium. The day begins with a short introduction and demo, and then students select a morning work site. We break for a gourmet farm lunch and good conversation. After lunch students may either continue with the morning drawing or begin another. Tuition is $115 and includes lunch and drawing materials for the day. More information will be sent upon registration. Sign up early!

Thursdays, May 5, 12, 19, and 26, 9:00-12:00
I will be offering this plein air class again this year on four Thursday mornings in May. Bring your oil pastels and paint sticks (or the medium of your choice) down to Pony Pasture Park at the James River for the first class.  For subsequent classes we will visit other sites including Maymont and Virginia House, according to class preference. Please sign up with me soon, no later than April 30. More information will be sent upon registration. Enjoy a quiet morning at the River. Sign up with a friend!
