A “Plein Aire” Workshop
. . . California Eastern High Sierras . . . June 18 – 21, 2013

It is hard to believe that it has been 6 years since we have done a Bridgeport
workshop. It was one of our most successful locations.So we are going back!
Bridgeport, offers a wide variety of subject matter for painting.
15 miles to the south is Bodie, one of the best known ghost towns in the west, with
it’s 170 buildings in arrested decay. Just west of Bridgeport is Twin Lakes and
the spectacular Saw-tooth mountains-or-We might just stay in town and paint the
Stately old Court House, a Historical Monument. The wide open valley is
dotted with barns and pastures full of grazing cattle. All in all it is a great place to paint. …


Fort Bragg and Mendocino . . . October 7-10, 2013

Last years trip to Fort Bragg and Mendocino brought us some of the best feedback
we have received since we started conducting 'plein aire' workshops. … So, going back is a no-brainer!
Again, our home base will be the Harbor Lite Lodge in Fort Bragg. It overlooks
the Harbor where we can paint fishing boats, docks, and buildings. Farther out
on the point is a dramatic coastline with crashing waves and rock formations.
A short trip south is Mendocino with all the charm a coastal town can offer. We
can paint a variety of Victorian buildings and/or exciting ocean inlets.
