Join Michele Byrne for an en plein air painting workshop at Los Luceros Historic Site where the summer beauty of the historic site will inspire participants to express their creativity. Join Michele will guide participants in capturing the very essence of light on canvas. Each day will begin with demonstrations and discussions on how to craft a strong composition. She will guide students every step of the way of their painting process. Michele will be working in oils, but students are encouraged to explore their preferred medium. A supply list will be provided.
