Let’s paint wildflowers en plein air!!

Dates: July 25th, 26th and 27th, 2020 

Time: 9 am to 4 pm each day

Class Fee: $100 each day, paint one day or all three days, your choice.

1st Location:  July 25th and 26th: Breckenridge, Colorado at a private alpine garden full of a wonderful variety of alpine wildflowers. No hiking involved. 
2nd Location: July 27th: Paint the amazing wildflowers and vistas on Shrine Pass! (must be able to hike with back pack of supplies uphill about 1 1/2 miles to our location on the pass). It’s a pretty easy hike but we will have supplies on our back so takes a bit of energy.

Instruction will concentrate on working fast to capture enticing compositions, determining value and temperature of colors, working with large shapes to simplify the scene and most of all having fun in the outdoors! Painting en plein air is fun not stressful if you learn to work with all of the challenges like wind, changing light, etc.  

A complete supply list will be emailed upon registration. 

Please email Cheryl at or call 303-947-4428 to register or with any questions.

Deposits for classes sent to: Joann Carhart Levy Box 1316: Edwards, CO 81632.

Workshop will concentrate on working quickly in an outdoor setting. Capturing the essence of the scene is most important as is composition, color, value, lost and found edges and brushwork to achieve an impressionistic painting. We will try and work on two paintings per day if time and conditions permit. This will promote working fast and not overworking. There will be a one hour break for lunch around noon each day. 

A complete supply list will be provided upon registration.
