Our First Regional Plein Air Workshop

Outstanding!

The painting was outstanding and the weather beautiful at our first PLEIN AIR WORKSHOP at Fox Run Vineyards in Penn Yan with nationally recognized artist and instructor Robert J. Simone. Workshop participants received both group and individualized instruction as well as enjoying the occasional glass of wine. The 3-day workshop on May 12, 13 and 14 is the first in what we are hoping to be an ongoing series of annual workshops with nationally known instructors that we will make available to the artists and art lovers of the Finger Lakes Region.

 

We welcome and encourage art lovers and artists of all ability levels, and we are committed to promoting all things art in the Finger Lakes Region. Workshop fees go to the instructor and the Arts Council’s many community outreach activities, such as our annual scholarship and grant programs for community organizations and emerging artists. Join us!
