Celebrate the iconic landscapes and seascapes of Point Reyes National Seashore with renowned watercolor artist Mike Bailey. Start each morning braving the seashore’s smarting air and catching Summer sunlight as it begins to rise in the East and hit the land and ocean literally at the edge of the world. Mike will be there working en plein air with the class to capture the aura and beauty of Point Reyes onto canvas. The class will visit outdoor locations throughout the park, to paint and explore ,and then retreat back to a studio environment for finishing and critique. Mike is an exciting and energetic teacher with a bold sense of humor and a knack for making any workshop fun. Accommodations included at the Historic Lifeboat Station.
