Richard McKinley - Advanced Painting / Mentoring Plein Air Workshop


Plein Air Workshop in Pastel and/or Oil with Richard McKinley  - May 13th through 17th, 2019

Richard McKinley is an American master artist. He is the President of the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS) and a Hall of Fame Honoree of the Pastel Society of America. Visit Richard’s artist page on this website for his bio.

This is Richard's five day, advanced "next step" workshop for those who have studied with Richard before, are advanced painters, have read his book, "Pastel Pointers," have watched his art videos, and/or are familiar with Richard as an artist. If you have not studied with Richard before but believe you are prepared to study with him as your "next step" then you are welcome, too.  This workshop will be an intensive artistic experience, invigorating, and fun!

Richard is the consummate teacher. He is well organized, provides and sticks to a lesson plan, and allows for modifications due to weather and more. He shares hand outs, conducts demonstrations to show his techniques firsthand, and provides lots of one-on-one at the easel, instruction, and feedback. On the final day the group paints indoors to resolve the paintings form the week.

May 13 - 17, 2019:   South Dennis on Old Bass River Road, Cape Cod, Massachusetts with indoor headquarters at the Mt Horeb Lodge.

5-day Pastel/Oil Next Level/Mentoring Workshop, Plein Air as weather allows. Prior workshop with Richard highly recommended, but not required.

Cost:  $650 per person

The workshop refund policy is as follows:

When the workshop is sold out and there is a waiting list, it is handled on a first come, first served basis. If you register and should have to cancel, you will receive a refund minus a $50 cancellation fee provided that someone else takes your place in the workshop. Because Richard is such a popular instructor, someone taking your place is likely, though cannot be guaranteed.

Richard McKinley is known world-wide as a remarkable teacher of art in oil and pastel. His book, Pastel Pointers, is about landscape painting and applies for those working in oil as well as pastel.
