Painting in the Great Smoky Mountains
June 10, 2018 – June 16, 2018
John David Wissler
The goal of this workshop is to enjoy the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains through observation and painting. Joining the great tradition of Constable and Corot, students will encounter their surroundings and paint daily, so be prepared for all types of weather. After working “en plein aire,” participants will return to the studio for critique, conversation and to prepare for the next day. Walking will be involved, so please remember to be as portable as possible. Students should look forward to sharing the language of art. Previous outdoor experience is preferred, and the class is open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
