New Workshop Location; Cloudcroft New Mexico!

We are very excited to announce a new workshop location for summer of 2014!  Nina has been invited to teach at Cloudcroft Art Workshops in Cloudcroft; New Mexico!

Summer Landscape Art Workshop


CloudCroft, New Mexico

July 21th - 25th


Travel Sketching: Creative Color Beyond Green

You love to draw and travel! Combine the two as you learn to capture fresh, expressive landscapes using water-based color pencils and non permanent graphic black pens. Learn elements crucial to successful landscape drawings with emphasis on a creative use of color. The workshop will cover colored pencil techniques such as layering, hatching; wet and dry usage; and the use of value and tonal value. Experiment with both studio sketching from photographs and plein-air drawings on site.
