Arcosanti Plein Air Painting Workshop

October 23, 2020 @ 9:00 am - October 25, 2020 @ 4:00 pm


Calling all painters looking to advance their skills in plein air painting! On Friday, Oct. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 25, Arcosanti hosts a three-day outdoor workshop led by Scottsdale-based artist Amery Bohling.

Designed to give students a solid approach to plein air painting, students will be working and staying on the grounds of Arcosanti throughout the program.

Each day after breakfast, the workshop will begin with an informative demonstration to show participants what steps to take in the approach to plein-air painting. Students will then be free to paint for the remainder of the day, after which they will gather to have a light discussion on how they did during the day and what help they need to move forward.

Key points covered in the workshop include how to select what to paint, how to plan what to paint using small sketches, establishing values, pre-mixing colors, painting techniques, how to know when to stop painting and more. All skill levels are welcome, but some experience will help.

Tuition is $395 and the workshop is limited to 10 students.
