Paint the Southwest Workshops
October 2017 – April 2018: Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah
“Paint the Southwest” Offers Two Kinds of Landscape Painting Workshops with Michael Chesley Johnson
1. Private Intensive Study. Based in scenic northern New Mexico at Michael’s winter studio, this workshop is for intermediate, advanced or professional painters only. After a preliminary consultation with Michael to create a custom program, you’ll work with him side-by-side, one-on-on, both in the field and in the studio. Includes six nights’ lodging at the studio and three meals a day, with private bed and bath.
2. All-Level Group Workshops. The original “Paint Sedona” program. Michael will teach small groups (no more than 8) the important fundamentals of plein air painting. Any level of student is welcome and in any medium. Workshops will be based in the beautiful red rock country of Sedona, Arizona, and elsewhere in the Southwest. Includes four half-days of tuition.

What to Expect
In the all-level workshops, Michael focuses on fundamentals for painting outdoors – how to begin, how to proceed and how to finish. He’ll show you how to capture the moment quickly and effectively but without sacrificing mood and magic. The workshop will include demonstrations but also plenty of time for student work plus group critiques. Advanced workshops are customized more to students’ needs and can also include mentoring. Whatever the workshop, Michael gives personal attention at the easel, complete with helpful tips and suggestions. You can expect an intense but very rewarding time!
