Make Your Landscapes Glow with Artist Becky Joy

Join Us at the Becky Joy Workshop

September 24th- 26th

3 Day Plein Air Landscape Oil Painting Workshop

$375.00 ~ Lunches are included 

If you register and pay by August 15th the workshop fee will be discounted $50.00, so you pay $325.00! After August 15th the fee is $375.00. The workshop requirement is a minimum of nine paid artists must be met by August 31st.
     Join nationally renowned artist Becky Joy for a three day plein air workshop in historical Perrysburg, Ohio. Attending artists will paint along the Maumee River on the scenic grounds of The 577 Foundation.  The workshop will begin with a private tour of the twelve acre grounds.  Following the tour we will gather in the studio where Becky will demonstrate her process, discuss her decisions, as well as share her overwhelmingly requested secrets on how to paint brilliant sunsets.  On day one, artists will work on exercises about color, texture, and how to develop your own unique voice in your work.  Emphasis will be placed on how to set a mood or glow to turn an ordinary landscape piece into something extraordinary.  The next two days will be dedicated to painting on the 577 Foundation grounds where artists will receive individual instruction and attention from Becky.  The workshop will close with a critique where Becky will assess each artist’s progress and offer constructive criticism and suggestions going forward.  The number of artists in the workshop will be a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 16.
