A rare opportunity to immerse yourself in painting while surrounded by museum quality fine art in a gallery high in the mountains of Far West Texas!
Learn new techniques and polish old ones in a relaxed, elegant setting with an intense schedule. Simply be an artist for a few days while expanding your skills and enjoying the view and the company of other painters and Big Bend artist Lindy Cook Severns, who is known for her information-packed classes and personal attention.
Appropriate for artists of all levels. Experience with pastels or landscape painting isn’t necessary. While basic drawing skills are presumed, this class is structured around the individual needs and abilities of each student. You will learn what you’re ready to learn.
Class fee includes three intense days of Instruction and Painting, plus two optional days with unstructured activities. Each artist is welcome to bring a guest to all social events, meals or hikes.
