Join me for four days of painting in the wonderful little town of Bisbee. It's an old historic mining town, at 5,000 feet, nestled in the desert mountains near the Mexican border. There are lots of old buildings, full of character, and the town has kind of a wild west feel to it, with some youthful artsy energy thrown in. Our painting locations will include the side streets of old downtown Bisbee, the storefronts and old cars of nearby Lowell, a vintage camping trailer park on the edge of town, and the dramatic desert landscape.
Geared toward advanced beginners and intermediate painters working in oil, though other media are welcome, our group will be limited to 14. We’ll have a workspace where we can meet for slide shows and critiques. The primary focus will be on capturing the intense, high desert light, with additional time spent discussing composition.
It is likely to be chilly in the early morning and late afternoon, but should warm up nicely with sun during the day. Each night we'll have a suggested group dinner option for those interested.
Your full payment of $700 reserves your spot, and includes four full days of instruction. Everyone will be responsible for their own lodging and transportation. I have reserved a block of rooms in an old historic hotel, which you can book individually. Tucson is probably the best place to fly into, an hour and 40 minutes away. Or if you're bringing an RV, there is an RV park in town.
Please email me if you're interested, and I will forward payment instructions and lodging information.
