Plein Air Retreat At Parker Ranch

Painting Retreat $75

Stay together, paint together. The Parker Ranch  in Clayton GA is a cozy gathering place. The owners, Becky and Paula have hosted my plein workshops several times and they always out do themselves to make sure everyone is comfortable.

Working from the landscape is such a great way to improve your paintings, but it can be overwhelming when just starting out.  I'll help you with tips and tricks to setting up and how to find your focus. This is a painting retreat with a loose structure and limited instruction. I will be available to give advice as you paint or you can strike out on your own.  This year, I would love for us to hit the town of Clayton for a night painting as well. (optional - but fun!!) I love the energy working outdoors brings to my paintings and I think you will too.
Retreat Times  2 - 6 Friday,  10 - 5 Saturday,  10 - 2:30  Sunday (optional night painting on Friday or Saturday ) 

 Join me for a relaxing weekend painting and camaraderie in the beautiful North GA  mountains.
Cost - $75 for the retreat pay here  and $140 for a single room/ $70 shared room a night for the rooms - reserve with Becky at Parker Ranch and pay her directly.  Becky Hoover
