Painting at the Stables

Allow your intuition to guide you as you express your creative spirit, learning techniques of expressive impressionism in order to create artful paintings of our horses. The horses, kindly held by the rancher, will be our muse as we intuitively express onto paper what we see. You’ll complete the workshop with 1-2 5x7 paintings and a short horseback ride back to the property.
