This course will offer students the opportunity to have a concentrated experience working en plein air in the New Hampshire landscape. Working from life, students will articulate and render their local surroundings in the medium of their choice: watercolor, acrylic paint, ink and drawing materials.   Demonstrations and individual instruction in a variety of mediums can and will be personalized to the student, and for those students just starting, daily demonstrations in watercolor and drawing will be the focus.  No experience is necessary.. Locations will include some of the different environments New Hampshire has to offer, mountains, woods, lakes, streams, and neighborhoods.

Students will rely on driving and carpooling and meet most often at the location we plan to work. The instructor will offer methods of working and discussion, as well as provide relevant reading material and resources, including books and slide presentations for further study.  This will be a studio-based course involving creative production, research, exploration of media, and the development of a coherent body of work. Open to participants at all levels of experience.
