This four day and three-night painting workshop will focus on developing and expanding skills of drawing, composition, and painting through keen observation of nature en plein air at Olana State Historic Site. Olana offers endless inspirational vistas, views, and vignettes to choose from all under the guidance of master painter Beth Runquist. Participants will be in a special “residency status” at Olana and will stay in an expansive and beautifully situated, privately owned farmhouse (with only painters in residence). In this way participants will step further into the Hudson River School atmosphere by eating, living and painting immersed in the local Hudson Valley culture. Shady Glen Farm has been in one family for nearly a century and offers private room comfort, meals provided by talented regional chefs (including from “Blue Hill” at Stone Barns), a swimming pool, walking trails, stone terraces and a rooftop deck for relaxing at the end of the day. Participants will receive site demonstrations, active teaching, and critique will be part of every day to expand experience and benefits. Join us and steep yourself in the art of living and painting in the Hudson Valley. Art making materials and transportation not provided. Space is limited and advance registration is required.
