YOUR VISION WORKSHOP...From Plein Air Sketch to Studio Piece.
What do you do with all those great ideas, plein air paintings, journal entries, or quick sketches you have accumulated? Would you like to learn a ‘tried & true’ process to create a studio piece directly inspired by your most responsive observations...start to finish? I have designed this 4 day workshop just for you!
Join me, Trish Harding, on a journey that promises to change how you see your own work from the start to finish-from plein air to a more narrative fine art painting, imbued with symbolism and your personal voice. We will be working at Studio UFO School of Art, 301 W Holly Street, Bellingham, WA 98225.
Art Walks in Bellingham are first Fridays and I would like to display the work done in this workshop during March which will be Friday March 1, 2019. It will be advertised and promoted by Studio UFO Gallery and have an artist reception opening that night. I can make arrangements to return work in August to Menucha or it can be picked up at Studio UFO. I won’t be able to ship it.
4 6-hour sessions, Friday 2/8, Saturday 2/9, Sunday 2/10, Monday 2/11, 10am-4pm, $400
Before you arrive:
Since this workshop is an intensive designed to take us all the way from our plein air painting to a finished studio work it will be necessary for each artist to prepare for the class ahead of time. Make sure that you bring at least:
1 plein air painting that you would like to pursue as a studio piece. We will not be doing any in the class, only using them as a jumping off spot.
Also required is at least 2 plein air sketches 24X18” newsprint. These are just for practice. We will be doing more during the workshop
AND finally at least 6 black & white “thumbnails” no larger than 1.5” x 2”. We will be doing more of these during the workshop as well.

I have two small buildings we call PODS that can accommodate two people in really comfy twin size beds for an additional $30 per night. You can come with a roommate or room with someone you may not know. The pods are heated and very cozy. There is, however, no bathroom near the pods so you will have to come to the house for the bathroom which is about 20 yards away. At this time there are only 2 beds left in one pod. So be sure to add those arrangements with your registration and check before hand to make sure that they are still available. First come, first serve. If you prefer other arrangements Bellingham has many other wonderful B&B’s, Airbnbs, motel, hotel, etc.
