Event Details

Join Todd and Chris for a three day, foliage painting adventure in the historic New Hampshire White Mountains in Crawford Notch. Workshop participants will paint, eat, live and share this experience together as a group at the Highland Center, Appalachian Mountain Club lodge. We will paint in the shadows of 19th century American artist pioneers, Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt, John Frederick Kensett, Jasper Francis Cropsey, Chauncey Ryder, and Frank Henry Shapleigh, whose original Crawford House artist-in-residence studio still stands on this AMC site. Through lecture, demonstration, side-by-side easel assistance and critique, Todd and Chris will guide students through the fundamentals of plein air painting. Through exercises in value, design, drawing and color, we will explore what it means to “See like an artist” as we capture the grand and simple beauty of the White Mountains.
