Adventures in Plein Air Painting

Idaho Landscape painting workshops take place at beautiful places around Idaho. It’s a mini expedition with painting thrown in what could be more fun than to wander the gorgeous country of Arizona and Idaho with easel in hand creating beautiful paintings. Plein Air painting is a lot of fun you get outside into the Land and paint directly from life. The light is unique and always changing which is a challenge that is so much fun and when the day is done you have something that you created. It is very satisfying.
