Santa Ynez Valley, California
October 24 – 28, 2022

$1,950 per student - Full, add your name to the wait list

Join me and author, painter, and fun person Frances Schultz, for four days of painting in the stunning Santa Ynez Valley of California. Our painting locations will include Rancho La Zaca, a lush vineyard, a beautiful beach and a working ranch, all set amid the breathtaking backdrop of mountains, oak savannas, winding country roads, cattle roaming amid hilly pastures, and the occasional real-life cowboy. If you don’t know Frances, find her on Instagram here, and at her website

Geared toward advanced beginners and intermediate painters working in oil, though other media are welcome, our group will be limited to 12. We’ll warm up with some still life exercises before venturing further afield for a variety of landscapes. As with all my workshops, the primary focus will be on capturing that beautiful California light!


Your full payment of $1,950 reserves your spot. Includes four full days of instruction, lunch daily, and a special farewell dinner at Frances' gorgeous Rancho La Zaca in Los Olivos. Everyone will be responsible for their own lodging and transportation, and we can send you a range of hotel and restaurant options. Go to Frances' website for more information and to sign up.
