Painting/Drawing en Plein Air Spring Weekend Workshop

Paint and draw en Plein Air at aspirational "Whitman Woods" under the tutelage of renowned Classical Realism Artist-Instructor Rebecca Tait. Drink in the wooded shoreline landscape that so inspired Walt Whitman during the very prolific twilight period of his life and interpret it in your hand. 


Just as Whitman acutely observed his daily life, absorbing it and transcribing it into fluid free verse, Ms. Tait views painting as "the science of seeing the visual truth and passionately turning it into the art of visual poetry." She teaches a very disciplined, classical approach to drawing and painting focusing on the effect of light on the subject.


Where better to learn this method and tap your creative energy than in Laurel Springs, "ground zero for Whitman on Timber Creek." The wooded lakeshore appears now much as it did in Whitman's day. Capture the landscape for yourself in oil, watercolor, pastel or pencil. (To virtually visit Ms. Tait's Glen Gables Studio, visit rebeccatait.com)
