Au programme

I have scouted out some beautiful locations here; some may be in the Hill Country, or in a hidden neighborhood park. I will tailor the journey to the needs of the group, because some places are more accessible than others and some groups like to walk more than others. I will provide all the art materials; there will be choices such as: drawing in pencil, color-pencil, or pen on paper. Watercolor is my specialty and color media is fun and rewarding to work with. I invite guests to bring their own art materials but it is not required. I will make sure there are places to sit (bringing some folding chairs, blankets to sit on, etc.) in the shade. There will be cold water to drink and non-toxic bug spray if the need arises. I will lead the group through the practice of choosing a scene, making a composition and letting the details settle so that one may see the scene in a more artistic way. This is a very low-pressure activity. It should be a focused but relaxed time. The practitioners will soon see how the landscape reveals itself. I will show them how to lay out one's palette, mix colors, see the colors hidden in nature and to work with the changing light. I see this experience as a way to better absorb the views and landscape of this region. Once you have taken the time to make art from a place, it is impressed on the mind and you will have a relationship to it.
Other things to note
Please dress for the weather, and don't wear anything you're afraid to get paint on. I can provide some aprons if you want. I would wear light, breathable clothing and a hat.

This experience would acquaint guests with the natural beauty of central Texas, while learning the skill of painting 'en plein air'. I have been painting landscapes from observation since attending school at the Art Institute of Chicago over a decade ago. Since then, I have taken my watercolors with me all over the world, and continue to paint my surroundings at home in Austin. I have taught painting and drawing to people of all ages. I currently teach art in a local college and Montessori school. When I first moved to Austin I worked as a tour guide at the state capitol, so I am familiar with the local history and love the idea of sharing the stories of the area along with bird sightings , plant identification, but most of all, the techniques to capture light, color and shade in a painting while enjoying the amazing vistas here.
