I'm teaching several workshops and classes in 2020. Subscribe to my email list at the bottom of the home page to be notified of upcoming workshops and classes before they become generally available.
Plein Air Painting Workshops
Discover a love for plein air painting with me in beautiful Old Florida. The plein air tradition, popularized by the impressionists in France, is a wonderful way to embrace nature and enjoy your creative side out of doors. We will review basic fundamentals - value, composition, and color; learn how to paint within Mother Nature's time constraints; and pick up tricks of the trade for painting out of doors. This workshop is ideal for those who have not painted out of doors previously, and will be held at various locations in the Tarpon Springs and Hudson, FL, area.
The workshop runs from 9-12 and 1-4 on January 14-15, 2020.
Each year, I teach a two day plein air painting workshop in Yarmouth, ME, in July, and a week long destination workshop either in June or September. Destinations so far have been Provence and Monhegan Island. Upcoming workshops will be announced first to those on my email list and then posted here.
I love to travel and can teach a workshop (plein air or studio painting) for your group. Please let me know if you'd like more information by clicking Contact Bobbi at the bottom left of this page.
If you need to cancel, refunds for workshops held in the US are available up to 45 days prior to the workshop start date minus a $50 administration fee. There are no refunds for destination workshops.
Student Comments From Bobbi's Workshops
- Bobbi is very patient and criticizes constructively.
- Her demonstrations are effective and she explains concepts in a variety of ways so that everyone understands them.
- Bobbi boils things down into simple exercises which allow me to learn first hand what I've read about in books that passed me by.
- Bobbi is very organized in how she presents things, which is helpful with so many elements to consider when approaching a painting. This helps create order out of chaos.
- The course of instruction was well thought out and we could build on what we learned the day before.
