Carson invites budding artists to paint outdoors

Published 7:06pm Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Jim Carson, Saluda artist, will offer a plein air (outdoor) workshop in Saluda Thursday – Saturday, May 30 – June 1 titled “Fresh Paint.”

The focus of the workshop will be to simplify your paintings, while learning to apply the paint quickly and confidently. The workshop will be held at three different outdoor but convenient, locations. It is open to all levels, from beginners to advanced. A detailed list of supplies and materials will be sent after registration.

There will be demonstrations by the artist, and lots of one on one easel time. In case of rain, there is ample space in Carson’s studio.

The price of the workshop includes lunch brought to the site each day by the Saluda Grade Café.
