Kevin Macpherson will offer an exclusive plein air workshop during his Sedona Arts Center exhibition of portraits from his travels in China, "Chinese Characters". The workshop is appropriate for aspiring artists, professional artists, and art appreciators. Kevin has a special talent to encourage and develop even the beginning artist.

This three-day workshop will illuminate your path to more successful paintings. Demonstrations will break down the complexity of painting and reveal the magical process in simple to understand terms. With colorful instruction we will also investigate the problem-solving methods of past masters. Daily on-site painting and individual and group critiques. We will spend one session during the workshop painting from the model.

Painting is simple but not easy. Kevin's class is about seeing and increasing your visual awareness. A great amount of stimuli must be categorized and orchestrated in the process of painting from life.


Tuition: $850


Payment Options: Students may pay in full or choose the payment-plan option during registration. The payment plan requires a non-refundable $125.00 deposit with the balance due 30 days before the first day of the workshop.
