DescriptionMaterials list
Discover a fresh, loose approach to transparent watercolor painting on location. Enjoy painting the mountains, wildflowers, trees, and natural treasures of Alaska in this two-day plein air intensive back to nature workshop at Chena Hot Springs.

Learn how to observe and to simplify in a plein air setting and avoid overworking. Each day there will be demonstrations and exercises to energize and excite - followed by lots of time for painters to create their own work. If you have always wanted to try your hand at plein air and working outside, this is a perfect workshop you!

In case the weather is not favorable to painting outside, Chena Hot Springs will provide an alternative space to paint. We will explore natural subjects through daily morning demonstrations and exercises. Feel free to bring any photo or sketch relating to Alaska’s wild places that inspire you. Some experience in watercolor is helpful but not required.

Starting April 15th, a 50% discount for a non-refundable room is available at the resort for all watercolor workshop participants.
