About This Workshop

Enjoy five days in a retreat setting learning to paint en plein air with Aaron Schuerr at our Tucson Ranch campus, which is located adjacent to Saguaro National Park in the foothills of the Rincon mountains. The resort setting provides a plethora of plein air locations just steps from the art studio. Students will spend five-days exploring the varied desert motifs in the studio and en plein. Learn to paint it in a way that is direct, simple, fresh, and honest. Engage in fun exercises designed to focus on value, color, and shape.  From that foundation, you’ll explore edges, atmospheric perspective, color and shape relationships, composition, and mood. During the evenings students can indulge further with sunsets oil and pastel demos by Aaron with a glass of wine. Our campus includes two pools, a spa, five star restaurant with authentic cuisine, and plenty of opportunities to create stunning paintings en plein air. Plein Air demonstrations in oil, group discussion, composition walks, painting exercises, and plenty of individual instruction will provide opportunities for students to gain enthusiasm and confidence in their own work. Bonus: Aaron will bring his pastels!
