Pastel Painting Workshop with Lindy Cook Severns

Friday, October 25 – Sunday, October 27, 2019

Location: Old Spanish Trail Gallery and Museum, Fort Davis, Texas

Immerse yourself in painting while surrounded by museum quality fine art in a gallery high in the mountains of Far West Texas. Learn new techniques and polish old ones in a relaxed, elegant setting with an intense schedule. Simply be an artist for a few days while expanding your skills and enjoying the view and the company of other painters.

Appropriate for artists of all levels. Experience with pastels or landscape painting isn’t necessary. While basic drawing skills are presumed, this class is structured around the individual needs and abilities of each student. You will learn what you’re ready to learn.

Class fee includes three days of Instruction and Painting, plus two optional days with events. Each artist is welcome to bring a guest to all social events, meals, hikes.

Enrollment is limited. To assure your spot, we highly recommend enrolling thru the secure online link on the gallery website, which will immediately put you on the list. You can also find a suggested supply list, lodging options (including limited lodging on site at Crow’s Nest Campground, RV Park and cabins), contact info and much more about the facility and workshop.

Workshop Cost: $425 paid at time of registration
Mastercard, Visa or personal check payable to Old Spanish Trail Gallery are accepted.

Registration is complete upon receipt of payment. Enrollment deadline October 5, 2019

MEALS

With the delightful exceptions noted above, meals are not included in this class. Old Spanish Trail Gallery & Museum is on a working ranch miles (15-20 minute drive) from Fort Davis, Texas. During the workshop, the ranch’s private kitchen across from the gallery will be open each morning and through the lunch break. There are tables and chairs, two refrigerators to store your picnic lunches in, and a microwave. Every day we will either give you a two-hour lunch break so you can go into town or have light fare catered that you can avail yourself of for a nominal fee.
