Event Details

Join the founders of Adventure Painting, a plein air artist residency, to follow in the footsteps of the great landscape painters showcased in New Beginnings: An American Story of Romantics and Modernists in the West. Students will paint at a location based on a selected work from the exhibition. This four-hour workshop includes a discussion of the work that inspired the location, an overview of techniques and painting strategy, and individualized instruction based on your goals as a plein air painter. An optional boxed lunch at the Harwood following the program is available as an add on.

This is a class for beginner/intermediate painters with some technical knowledge. Materials are not provided. A list of recommended materials will be sent to all registered participants. Program will begin and end at the Harwood. A few field easels are available to rent upon request. Limited to 12 students. Ages 16+

The Harwood is committed to providing equitable access to programming. Contact for information about available scholarships.
