Join internationally recognized, award-winning artist Mark Mehaffey for a three-day intensive in-studio boot camp and “open air” painting journey on the campus of Interlochen Center for the Arts. This workshop will begin with demonstrations in watercolor and acrylic paint and a crash course in the studio to review the fundamentals of color mixing, composition, and basic concepts. Participants will then apply their knowledge and hone their powers of observation as they capture the serene beauty of the natural landscape. On the second day of this boot camp, students will join Mark for a scenic waterfront painting session and lunch on the breathtaking Lake Michigan shoreline (weather permitting). After working “en plein air,” participants will be invited back into the studio to discuss and fine tune their works. All skill levels are welcome. Participants may bring either gouache, watercolors, and/or acrylic paints.
