Join teaching artist Tracy Grisman for a plein air painting meetup! Each individual meetup will meet in a different location! Tracy will provide a quick demo and offer critique and support individually. 9:00AM is a time for the serious artist, and together you will continue to hone your ability to capture the light and beauty of this incredible place that we live!

Please wear layers! During the workshop, a variety of weather conditions may happen and you will paint better if you are comfortable. Remember you can always take layers off! Please bring a water bottle for yourself to stay hydrated. Snacks, coffee and teas will be provided.
