Take a mini painting trip this Spring! Sharon, an award winning plein air artist, will show you how to capture the beauty of nature. You will be painting in our local scenic areas with instruction. Students will learn color mixing, composition and other skills.
Open to all ages & levels. This is a great Workshop to hone your skills in the fine art of landscape painting from the ocean, beach and sky to the gentle hills, trees, parks and vistas. The group is enthusiastic with all levels of painters and a safe environment.
We will be painting at Adamson House on PCH (23200 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu, CA 90265). Parking for a fee is in the lot to the left of the entrance. Or you can park for free on PCH and walk in (See the map in the gallery for more information). The grounds are open but the house is closed as of June 5. Since we are getting there at 9:30 parking should be no problem.
