Anderson Ranch Art Center

Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass, Colorado offers all kinds of workshops in the summertime, for all ages and skill levels. It's a beautiful place to study with prominent artists, and you might be able to sit in on a presentation that's entirely different from what you came for. In addition to traditional classes in ceramics, woodworking, printmaking, photography and drawing and painting, they offer unusual interdisciplinary and "new media" classes such as...performance drawing, bookmaking using sheets of mica and wood as well as paper, digital imaging on clay, digital storytelling, etc. They also offer field expeditions to Jamaica (for pottery) and Utah and the Outer Hebrides (for photography).

On the "drawing and painting" list, there are several classes that might interest a plein air painter, such as the following (all are 5 days, except Figure in the Landscape, which is 12 days):

Beginning Oil Painting - Paul Collins
Fresh Air, Fresh Paint - Gregory Botts
Flower Power - Glenn Goldberg
Figure in the Landscape - John Hull
Site and Story - Annice Jacoby & Julie Heffernan
