We Paint...the Woods

September 21-22, 2013

A Watercolor Weekend at Bradford Woods Outdoor Education Center, sponsored by the Bloomington Watercolor Society in collaboration with Ivy Tech-Bloomington Center for Lifelong Learning.



$70, including lunch

Plein air painting is a time honored method of capturing, in watercolor, the beauty of the great outdoors.

Instructors Sandy Ezell and Jeanne McLeish, professional artists and instructors, will guide you, in separate workshops, through the special challenges and rewards of plein air painting and teach you how to achieve success. In the morning sessions, students will be in the classroom but may move, weather permitting, to the outdoor deck overlooking the lake during the afternoon. One-on-one attention and class critiques are provided.
