Treasures of the Triad Spring Workshop - April 24-26th, 2018

Ready for a change of scenery and some new painting inspiration? Join a fun and relaxed small group for a plein air exploration of three gems of the Triad! Artists at all levels and with all mediums will share in a 3 day program of classroom instruction and outdoor painting with personalized support. With a focus on the power of 3’s, Kirah Van Sickle will lead us through color triads, value patterns and composition cues to enhance your landscape works and build confident paint handling.

The 3 day workshop is based at the Manor House at Tanglewood Park, just west of Winston Salem. This historic B&B, once the country estate house of the Reynolds family, offers a variety of both single and double accommodations. Now also home to the gardens of Forsyth County Arboretum, Tanglewood offers many plein air subjects with old barns, resident horses, and acres of rolling woodlands. Walking trails, golf course and trail rides are available for you and/or non-painting companions.

Just minutes away from Tanglewood we will visit West Bend Vineyards, to enjoy a catered lunch and wine tasting during a day of painting in the vineyard. On our third day the beautiful formal gardens created by the Reynolds family at Reynolda Village in Winston Salem over 100 years ago will offer green paths and pergolas, open air fountains and beautiful blooms surrounding a Victorian style glass greenhouse.

Each day and location has been planned to offer a “rainy day” situation to allow for comfortable and interesting views no matter what the weather. Contact us today for more information and any questions about program or registration.

Registration: Registration and $150 deposit accepted until March 15. Final payment of $200 is due April 15th. Registration after March 15 requires full payment of $350. Organizers: Meroe Wheatley and Donna Launey.
