Just two spots remaining! This workshop includes 2 days in the studio, and 1 day on location at Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore.

Back by popular demand, Cedar Kindy will be teaching: Plein Air Painting at the Sleeping Bear Dunes.  Learn about clean transparent colors, brush stroke simplicity, and dynamic composition. Basic watercolor techniques covered will include wet-on-wet, graduated washes, lifting out, dry brush, and painting with a straw. We will focus on the Michigan coastline: dunes and their flora, the old outbuildings of the national park, and, of course, Lake Michigan! You will learn to paint quickly and gear up simply so you can begin or continue daily painting practice on your own! 1-day site visit to Sleeping Bear included!  

Level: Introductory through Advanced
