Pepperwood Spring Retreat - Landscape Painting En Plein Air: Expressing the Spirit of Place
Plein air painters share a commitment with scientists to deep observation, to documenting and protecting our open spaces for future generations, and to sharing the joys and solace of nature. Spend an exciting weekend painting on location in the midst of Pepperwood's iconic Sonoma County landscapes with Santa Rosa Junior College instructor Marsha Connell.  

Engage your senses and the kinesthetic body to awaken an energetic connection with the landscape. Beginning painters: learn basics of working in the field.  Experienced painters: practice and expand your repertoire.  Explore aspects of realism, impressionism, expressionism, or abstraction.  Enjoy support for finding your own painting voice to express the spirit of this special place.

Use any painting or drawing media. Demonstrations will be given in oils and drawing.  Participants are invited to stay overnight at the Bechtel House or camp under the stars. The retreat includes moderate hikes of less than a mile at a slow pace with long stops.  A catered dinner Saturday night and continental breakfast on Sunday are included. Saturday's schedule includes evening sunset painting. A materials list and instructions will be sent to participants in advance.
