Jeanne Rosier Smith Fall 2024 Workshop  - Plein Air to Studio

October 16-18, 2024

2024 Jean Rosier Smith Workshop

Autumn Breeze


Maryland Pastel Society is delighted to welcome back Jeanne Rosier Smith for a 3-day plein air and studio workshop, “Composing Landscape: Plein air to Studio.” This workshop explores the advantages of a plein air practice, even for those typically most comfortable in the studio. By composing the landscape and observing color directly from life, we gain freedom and strength in our decision making. The interplay between plein air and studio will revolutionize the way you think about your reference photo, freeing you up for stronger and more interpretive painting.

This workshop will be held at the Howard County Arts Center in Ellicott City, Maryland (Map)
