Learn the best ways to pack light for outdoor painting, then head outside to paint a landscape with one on one help at the easel. Class will end with a gentle critique of finished work.  Students should bring a lunch and their own drawing or painting equipment. All mediums are welcome;  the instructor, Neal, will be working in soft pastel.
