Painting Winter En Plein Air – A Special Landscape Workshop at the McMichael

Winter 1 by Andrew Sookrah

Join artist and art instructor Andrew Cheddie Sookrah for a one-day-only en plein air painting workshop focused on the winter landscape. Bundle up for a day-long immersion into the interconnections between colour, form, structure, depth and texture found in the Ontario winter landscape.

Leveraging the versatility of acrylics and working on the beautiful grounds of the McMichael in Kleinburg, students may begin new work or continue an existing piece while learning how to interpret the winter landscape in their own voice. Materials not included, please dress appropriately for the outdoors.

1-day Workshop: Saturday, Feb. 19 | 10 am – 4 pm

Check back often for new classes!
