Glacier National Park en Plein air 3 day workshop.

This is a rare opportunity. We have been granted permission to hold this workshop inside Glacier National Park!

Participants will receive a free copy of Putnam's booklet "Plein air, Right from the Start." The workshop will include lectures and demonstrations; individual painting time; personalized instruction; and group discussions aimed to promote participant progress. While demonstrations and advice on technique will be geared toward oil painters, artists who are more comfortable working in other mediums are welcome. 

A word about where to stay: Accommodations can be a little bit of a drive, but it is a beautiful drive! There are several options in West Glacier, but they fill rapidly. We will be meeting at the North end of Lake McDonald at the historic Wheeler Cabin. If possible you will want to find lodging on the WEST side of Glacier Park. (Look as far west as Kalispell. The Red Lion Inn has special rates. You would need to call and ask for them. (406) 751-5050.) I am staying at the Belton Chalets which is inside the park near the South end of Lake McDonald. Still a 20-minute drive due to the park speed limit. See you there!

Workshop fee = $600 non-museum members/$540 museum members.

Wayfinding: Creativity and the voice of the artist

LM3.jpg

A Workshop with Larry Moore

Whether you are a realist, impressionist, pop-surrealist or abstract artist, learning how to really think about what you are doing, what your purpose is, your message and your visual language, is paramount to originality and authenticity. This 5-day class, designed by Larry Moore, author of Fishing for elephants, Insights and exercises to inspire authentic creativity, will help you break out of your usual and discover new directions in your work. You will be challenged, you will consider things you have never considered and you’ll end up with a much better picture of who you are and what you have to say… and how to say it. And you will learn a system of thought to take wherever you wish to go. All levels welcome, all mediums. There will be growth.
