WORKSHOPS

Eric's workshops focus on painting outdoors with a strong emphasis on developing the artist's eye - how do we see, and what are we trying to say? The basics of painting, including design, color, and composition, are employed to strengthen each artist’s individual voice. The first day of the workshop begins with an introduction and discussion of materials and techniques followed by demos and individual painting. Instructor will provide any necessary maps, hotel recommendations, and more info upon registration.

Accommodations, transportation, food, and art supplies are the responsibility of the student.

Class sizes are kept small in each workshop and are filled on a first come first served basis. For more info and to reserve your spot, click the button under your workshop.

Sometimes other workshops will be announced here or on social media - follow Eric on Instagram for last minute workshop updates.
