Pocket Sketching For Travel And Plein Air with Kath Macaulay

When: June 8, 9, & 10, 2018
Where: Central Art Classroom
Time: 9:30am - 4:00pm
Price: $300.00
(you bring your lunch the first two days)

Learn enough to play for a lifetime!

This is the perfect technique for travel journaling, hiking, biking, sauntering, sitting in a café or the airport. Capture what you think you see in 25 minutes or less using a water soluble pen, a 4 x 6 inch pad of paper and a small paint set.

Ideal for the timid beginner to paint fearlessly in public, and the advanced artist who wants minimal equipment, total portability, speed, no interruptions and no clean-up.

Workshop includes several of the watercolor techniques of John Singer Sargent and uses photos of his watercolors extensively as teaching examples.

From a former student at Canyon Ranch, “You just changed my life: I can do this!”

ONLY 2 WEEKS TO SIGN UP! For reservations and info, contact Central Art: 541.773.1444 or email
