WHERE THE DEER & THE ANTELOPE PLAY led by Lorenzo Chavez (Member, Pastel Society of CO)
This Fall, for the first time, 12-15 Plein Air Painters will be invited to spend a week in this beautiful place, roaming over the untouched land to find the perfect painting site during the day, lunch brought to you, and returning at night to a welcoming campsite with great food, a shady large tent with tables and chairs, campfire and evening entertainment. Some wine too.
We are delighted to welcome LORENZO CHAVEZ to be our Plein Air painting guide for the week. Born and raised in the Rockies, Mr Chavez has achieved international renown for his Art. He is well known as an excellent Fine Art instructor, and he tells us he is especially delighted to join us on this trip because he feels so at home in this ‘big-sky’ country with an unspoiled landscape of sage, piñon and aspen.
Check out his website: www.lorenzochavez.com/about/
DATES: The first week of October, 2018. Sunday evening, 9/30 – Sat morning, 10/6. We plan for 5 full days of painting, 6 nights camping, 17 meals, evening entertainment.
