On the first Saturday of October, I had the pleasure of teaching a painting class for the Desert Institute at Black Rock Campground in our beautiful Joshua Tree National Park. The weather was lovely, and my 6 students and I painted and lunched al fresco! My next class will be on March 2, 2019 https://www.joshuatree.org/desert-institute.html In fact, several participants visited Studio 27 during the art tours; the last photo shows one who brought his painting to show me after some touch ups at home!
I am especially excited about an opportunity to teach a new workshop at the historic and charming Campbell House Bed & Breakfast and gardens in 29 Palms January 22-24, 2019. (Tuesday 3 p.m. – Thursday noon) Believe it or not, January is generally a lovely and sunny time of year.
My Gateway Getaway: “Desert Landscape Painting in Water Based Paints,” workshop offers a unique opportunity to enjoy the Mojave Desert near world famous Joshua Tree National Park and to explore your creative side. Campbell House has recently built a modern studio workshop and new cottages, all in the style of the original historic New England style home. http://www.campbellhouse29palms.com/
