Visiting Taos, New Mexico in 2007 was a peak experience for me. The names Taos and Santa Fe evoke colorful and exotic artistic visions of the Southwest.

There is nothing like experiencing the cobalt canopy of sky and the pink high desert colors of the area. It is special and urges artists to break out of their color comfort zones.

Your inner artist will never forget the time spent on the turquoise trail, the mountains, canyons, huge skies, cascading streams, and 360 degree sunsets. Seeing this land through a painter's eye will add further insights about color to your process. It has the power to transform your work and perhaps your life.
 
This land is the inspiration for countless artists' visions and works of art.
If this is a trip you have been dreaming about, then this is the time in your life to take advantage of the great itinerary planned for 2011. I invite you to give yourself a gift you will never forget.


Yours in Art,

Shelli

East Meets West Plein Air Painting 2008

"Taos was the experience of a lifetime for me, a dream come true. The hotel was not only comfortable and the food excellent, but it was situated perefctly for all the scenic/subject excursions."

"An excellent re-grounding for any individual who wants to devote a week strictly to the observence of the beauty of nature. It's not often one can devote oneself 24/7 to the passion of art and the company of likeminded devotees."

- Rose Ann, Bay Shore, NY
 Student Testimonial from 2008

Acadia Workshop Center
Shelli Robiner-Ardizzone


Oil, Pastel or Watercolor

PLEIN AIR BOOT CAMP


Painting outdoors is absolutely NOT like studio painting. There is nothing like being IN your painting, IN the physical world, IN sun, wind, fresh air and IN the MOMENT totally involved. You cannot get the feeling unless you do it, and Shelli can help you find your way.

This is for studio painters who wish to challenge their comfort level and plunge into Plein Air in the best possible setting - with expert guidance in COASTAL MAINE.

LEARN THE ESSENTIALS of plein air painting as Shelli Robiner-Ardizzone takes you through the basics of color mixing with a limited palette, values and color clues, and selecting great compositions on-site, in gorgeous Maine vistas.


This PLEIN AIR BOOT CAMP workshop will also include a combination of demos and individual guidance, quick and extended studies, and group critiques that will increase your color awareness and expand your painting skills and confidence.

There will be optional evening studio time in the excellent facilities of the Acadia Workshop Center and local seacoast dining.


SHELLI ROBINER-ARDIZZONE is a Studio and Plein Air Painter, garnering awards in both oil and pastel media. She has organized painting workshops in San Miguel de'Allende, Mexico, Taos, NM, and Tryingham, MA. Presently, she is teaching at The Newark Museum, NJ, and various Long Island, NY art centers.

ALL LEVELS OF PLEIN AIR EXPERIENCE AND
PAINTING WELCOME!
$550 Workshops run 5 days, M-F, unless noted otherwise. SUPPLY LIST to come.
