Lori Putnam’s sold-out workshops are a testament to her approachable, giving nature, energetic demonstrations, and hands-on teaching style. Her paintings are a personal and genuine response to her subject, and she encourages and teaches her students how to do the same. She believes that each artist sees differently and finds his or her own, distinctive mark. Yet letting go of formulas and finding the confidence to express ourselves honestly seems difficult, sometimes even fearful. Students will leave this workshop excited; ready to experiment more on their own; and, above all, pointed toward meaningful, personal, artistic growth. Participants will receive a free copy of Putnam’s booklet “Plein air, Right from the Start.”

The workshop will include lectures and demonstrations; individual painting time; personalized instruction (perfect for advanced beginners, intermediate and advanced painters); and group discussions aimed to promote your progress. While demonstrations and advice on technique will be geared toward oil painters, artists who are more comfortable working in other mediums are welcome. Plein air experience strongly recommended.
