Between May 11 and May 17, the Spokane Plein Air Workshop 2018 sessions will be on sale.

I will be teaching this series of plein air workshops in Spokane this summer. A total of eight sessions will be offered, two at the beginning of each month. Each two-session workshop will explore a different location in the greater Spokane area, including these potential sites; Centennial Trail, Manito Park, Latah Creek, The Little Spokane River, etc.

You can sign up for all eight sessions, or for a smaller package of four sessions. If you do opt for the smaller package, you can pick and choose which sessions to attend. You can find more information on my Classes website, classes.williamelston.com . I will also be offering deeper discounts for Senior Citizens (age 65 and older.) The sale runs through May 16, ending at midnight on May 17.

There are only a limited number of openings, so please sign up early.

The May Sale also includes Greater Seattle Plein Air sessions, Private Lessons, Critiques and Online Critiques. There are also deep discounts for Senior Citizens (age 65 and older.)

If you or a friend are interested in painting life as it is happening right before your eyes, this is a good time to sign up. From my website:

"Painting en plein air is less about representing the countryside or urban environment than it is about becoming aware of life's underlying rhythms. By sustained looking and listening, the distractions of daily life fall away. We find ourselves more fully occupying the moment. By replicating this pulse in the gestures of our brushstroke, we train our mind on what is essential. The paintings that result give witness to that intimacy."

The sale continues from May 11 through May 16, and ends at midnight on May 17. For details go to my classes website.
