We will begin each day with a demo by the artist.  At that time, George will discuss composition, laying out the pallet, proper use of materials and all other aspects of plein air painting.  We will then break up into groups and paint individually.  George will provide individual instruction helping solve the issues for each artist.  After lunch, George  will do another quick demo to refresh the ideas presented at the start.  Painters will start a second painting for the afternoon with additional individual instruction.  Participants will be meet at Jackson Art and then travel to painting locations nearby. Please bring your own plein air equipment and media. (oil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic). Deadline for Sign up, April 20.
