Instructor: George Van Hook

George Van Hook invites you to a two-day summer workshop, where you will learn composition, laying out the pallet, proper use of materials and all other aspects of plein air painting. George stresses alla prima painting and using a loose and fast approach to capture the landscape in the first try. Participants will be meeting on location and painting all day from 9am – 4pm. Workshop includes live demos and individual attention.

You will begin each day with a demo by the artist. You will then break up into groups and paint individually. He will then provide individual instruction helping solve the issues for each artist. After lunch, he will do a quick demo to refresh the ideas presented at the start. Painters will start a second painting for the afternoon with additional individual instruction.

Artists at any stage of their development are welcome.

Upon receiving your registration, a materials list, a daily schedule and recommendations for accommodations and restaurants will be sent to you via email.
