Pack your paints and put on your hiking boots. Getting to the views that we will paint in this class is going to take a little work. The very special locations we will visit are only accessible by hiking/horseback riding trails. It is worth the effort, and you will see new vistas that will inspire you to paint your best work. Each class is a one of a kind experience that will challenge you physically as well as creatively. Guided on the trail and on the canvas by a teaching master artist, you will see and capture the Santa Barbara landscape in a way you have never done before.
