"Plein Air Painting in Newport, Rhode Island"
October 16-20, 2017

Don’t miss this opportunity to paint on location at one of the east coast’s premier sailing ports, led by plein air painter extraordinaire Joseph Sweeney and local architect and watercolorist, John Grosvenor. Newport offers everything the landscape painter could want: breathtaking seascapes, sailing ships, cliff walks, and historic architecture. Learn to paint efficiently out-of-doors with tips on choosing a prime location, capturing the weather and light, and setting up a seascape palette. All media are welcome, including oil, acrylic, pastel, and watercolor. The course features visits to great cliff-side estates of Newport including Castle Hill, the Vanderbilt Grace Hotel, and private estates by special arrangement. Between painting sessions, there will be ample time to explore the picturesque town of Newport.
