Join Us and Paint in California!
In these Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay Area,
California Outdoor Workshops,
we will paint in various spectacular central coast locations!
A different spot each day!

'How to Increase Your Color Courage!
How to Create Drama with Light and Color.
Learn Color Harmony & Color Contrasting techniques!'

Art Workshop Instructor, Maggie Renner Hellmann
will share with you her craft & knowledge and help you
to free yourself from stagnant color choices.

Learn Color Theory and practise the
core elements of successful paintings.
- Color, composition, focal point, light source, values,
positive & negative shapes, volumes, edges,
brushwork & perspective, and much more.

Maggie will guide you to easy access,
spectacular painting areas.

Each day begins with Maggie giving a demo
with handouts on one of the many “elements of painting”.
Then she will assist artists individually and paint
for students to observe thru-out the day.
Group idea sharing at lunch and
paintings shared at the end of the day.

Come & share in the delight and energy of painting outdoors.

A perfect blend of
Art & Adventure!
