Come make art with us. We invite you to join our plein air (painting, drawing and photography outside) group, normally limited to Guild members, and featuring daily special demonstrations designed specifically for ArtWeek. We’ll meet at a different Berkshire location each day. A Guild artist will give a demonstration with a special focus on plein air techniques and materials. Oil painting, watercolors, photography and digital painting will be demonstrated during the week. Bring your own supplies. Join us for lunch (each pays or bring a lunch) followed by a positive critique to see what we have each done and get positive suggestions. This event is fully interactive and open to artists of all levels. Cost is @$15 per day.
Artists demonstrating during Artweek include Walt Pasko, Anne Wickham Smith, John Stanmeyer, Susan Pettee, Scott Taylor, Keith Emerling, Erin Potter, and Karen Carmean.
