Emerald Bay En Plein Aire Experience 

Four-Day Workshop on location & at Tahoe Art League Gallery - South Lake TahoeJune 25 thru June 28

$285 supplies not included


Combining her passion for the Sierra Nevada wilderness and her love of painting, art instructor and professional watercolorist, Dana Childs is hosting a series of Plein Aire Painting Outings & Hikes.  “Essentially what we do is trounce out into the wilderness and paint our interpretation of the beauty that surrounds us,” says Childs.  “Inspiration is the key to all good painting, and getting outdoors and painting not only what we see, but merging that with how the space and experience makes us feel is key to creating excellent art.”   We are blessed to have the sponsorship of Tahoe Art League Art Gallery who will be hosting our studio time.  The Gallery is well lit and spacious, and will be excellent to retreat to and work on final drafts of our onsite sketches, or finalized paintings we've started and desire to finish.
