I had an incredible experience at this workshop and highly recommend it! Amy is a very generous, fun, and knowledgeable teacher with a concise and approachable strategy for making a completed painting by the end of the day (we even framed it). I have always enjoyed painting but remain mostly self-taught, so it was great to ask Amy a million questions about technique and how to create a composition plan. I have new skills and a deeper understanding of painting from the day I spent as her student. I believe that this workshop would be great for a variety of experience levels, however. Amy was able to tailor her approach to my skill level, but her overall concept would work if I was a total beginner as well! Such a cool location, and in her studios/ air bnb / former stables. Take advantage of the pool for a refreshing dip while you wait for your work to dry!
