Painting In The Great Smoky Mountains

November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020

John David Wissler

During this workshop students will enjoy the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains through observation and painting. Joining the great tradition of Constable and Corot, participants will paint every day, so be prepared for all types of weather. After working “en plein aire” you will return to the studio for critique, conversation and to prepare for the next day. Walking will be involved, so mobility is important. Previous outdoor experience preferred. Open to all skill levels.


John David Wissler is the former president of the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation in Maine and current chairman of the board of the Mount Gretna School of Art in Pennsylvania. He received his MFA from the Parsons School of Design in New York. His studies include travel to France, Italy, Russia, Switzerland and Germany. Wissler was awarded artist residencies at the Heliker – LaHotan Foundation in Maine and the Borgo Finochietto in Tuscany, Italy.
