Summer Workshop

My annual Plein Air Basics workshop for the Glen Arbor Art Association was a couple of weeks ago.  It’s great that they have a relationship with the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore which allows hosting of the class at one of the historic homestead farms, Thoresen Farm. 

The first day we stayed on the farm and I started with a demo of the out-house and hen-house. They put the hen-house/hatchery next to the out-house so every time you went out to take care of business you could check on the eggs.

The second day we went down to the beach. Perfect weather, great group. Class was full. I’m working on a possible 1-day workshop for later September in Glen Arbor.
