Since 1990, we've been offering fine art instruction through plein air and studio workshops in a variety of locations. Artists may choose an all-inclusive package in a Premium workshop retreat; or a workshop in which the participants are responsible for their own lodging and meals.

 

A special thanks to all of the extraordinary artists that I have had the good fortune to meet in the workshops over the years. It is a fantastic journey and I am grateful! - Marty Brens

"I'm always looking for an image that tells a story.  They are all around us.  They are the stories of everyday life. Being at the same time familiar and unique, they inspire me to find meaning in the experiences we all share." Kim English

 

Premium workshop: 6-8 student maximum with all the perks.  All-inclusive, private room and bath, three meals daily, appetizers after class, and wine or beer with happy hour and with dinner. Chefs Michael and Steve from Rustingram Catering will be preparing all of our meals as well as appetizers at the close of class. We can accommodate any dietary issues you may have.  

 

This workshop will focus on the ability to paint quickly and accurately. This is a skill that can be useful in many situations, especially working on location. Techniques for achieving a spontaneous yet controlled approach will be practiced. Students will work with models in natural light on the grounds of the ranch. Artists will paint quick poses, working into longer poses as the class progresses. Two days with model and two days of landscape painting using the same approach of seeing the big shapes quickly.

One to two days will be devoted to landscape painting on location outdoors.  Kim is known for his great approach to light and shadow. He will demonstrate and work individually with all students.

Kim will paint a brief demo each morning to help students "see" the value of massing in big shapes, and the importance of an organized palette, keeping it simple. The goal of this workshop is not to create a finished painting, but numerous very quick, spontaneous, yet controlled studies.  As the week progresses you may find you do have a few "keepers!"

$2395 This price does not include the model fee of $50 or lodging tax.  All-inclusive, private rooms with baths, three meals daily, appetizers after class, and wine or beer with happy hour and with dinner. Chefs Michael and Steve from Rustingram Catering will be preparing all of our meals as well as appetizers at the close of class.  We can accommodate any dietary issues you may have.  Massage is also available after class and into early evening upon request.
