Jim Carson will conduct a plein air (outdoor) oil and acrylic workshop, titled Color/Getting It Right in Saluda on Thursday through Saturday, October 28 through 30.

Appropriate to the beautiful colors of the western N.C. fall season, this workshop will concentrate on color harmony, including instruction on mixing the right color for the right spot, and getting the correct, but often subtle, color balance.

The three-day workshop will be held at different outdoor locations each day, and feature demonstrations by the artist and critiques of the students work at the end of each day.
