Plein Air Painting in Yosemite

Maui Artist Jim Kingwell returns to teaching plein air painting this July 25th to 31st, 2010 in beautiful Yosemite National Park.

The Yosemite Art Center classes will be held daily Tuesday thru Saturday, 10am to 4pm. This year's theme, "Painting from the Hip" shares Jim's ability to travel light and capture quickly the essence of the elusive beauty of the valley. From quick sketch expressions with watercolor accents to direct plein air exercises by brush will let students take home fun and memorable results.

Years of traveling aboard from Finland to Chile have allowed Jim to capture simple vingettes to complete studies from these locations.

Jim's demos and lessons will allow participants to learn rewarding techniques of painting expressive and unique works of their own.
