Artists will have the rare opportunity to study with some of the greatest plein air painters in America. Plein Air Painters of America master instructors Kenn Backhaus, Jill Carver, Len Chmiel, Ralph Oberg, Matt Smith, Skip Whitcomb, and Dan Young are coming to the southeast to teach at the Booth Art Academy.
$850 per student for four days of instruction, one full day of artist talks, two evening lectures, and Booth Museum admission. A lecture only option is available upon request.
Students will take two, two-day classes. Students will select a different artist for each class. A maximum of fifteen students will be in each class. A full day of artist talks by each of the participating instructors, two evening presentations featuring PAPA members, and a special tour of the Booth Museum are also included.
All of the classes will be outdoors. In the unfortunate event of inclement weather, classes will be indoors.
Students will bring all supplies needed for both classes. After final payment, students will receive a supply list for each two-day workshop.
