This event will be held out of doors with class registration at The Atelier and then a painting demonstration outside near the school. Brian will cover all the procedures, concepts and equipment for Plein air painting. This 3-day workshop will include a talk, demonstration and hands on critiques.

Brian will share about his life in the arts and his history, experiences, and travels of being a plein air painter. Brian is a signature member of the Plein Air Painters of America, a Minnesota State Arts Board grant recipient, and former advertising agency owner and Atelier student. He will talk about the Art Life, making a living as an artist, grants, atelier training and much more, including a question and answer session. Brian will give an outdoor painting demonstration that illustrates his unique way of building a painting and briefly covers the elements and procedures of his workshops. This is a must-see workshop for art students who love nature and wish to become a complete, all around painter that includes outdoor painting skills. The demonstration will also be of interest to art collectors and nature lovers!
