Join artist and teacher Adam VanHouten for two fun-filled evenings painting the summer light in the Grand Traverse Area. We'll meet in the studio at Crooked Tree go over outdoor setup, materials to bring, and what to expect in the plein air environment. Learn about composing your image, using edges to depict depth, value scales through notan and grayscale sketches, color mixing, and much more. In the evening, we'll head into Traverse City to paint an “evening light” scene. Students may choose to paint in any wet media; watercolor, oil, and/or acrylic.

Whether just beginning or a more experienced plein air painter, you will gain valuable knowledge during this 2 day plein air workshop.
