Plein-Air Painting & Photo Workshop
Niki will conduct the Plein-Air Painting Workshop from different picturesque locations daily, teaching through a combination of demos, discussions, assistance and critiques. Sessions will be broken into different morning and afternoon locations, with plenty of time in between for shopping, sightseeing or for a leisurely lunch.
Scott will take the photographers on a daily tour where you will have the opportunity to experience Santa Fe through your lens as Scott guides you to use your camera to define what you see while achieving your own artistic vision. As with the painters, there will be daily destinations with time allowances for exploring on your own.
This unique Workshop affords you the option to choose which aspect interests you, whether it is painting, photography or both. Thereby giving you an opportunity to make the most of your Santa Fe experience.
There will also be valuable critique sessions throughout the workshop. This will give everyone an opportunity to discuss the day’s events, compare notes, ask questions and get a chance to know each other. It also presents a unique option to get views and perspectives from both painters and photographers.
Niki has been painting for more than 20 years, and is a nationally acclaimed artist whose work is much sought after and collected, as well as being an accomplished painting instructor with over 10 years of experience. Scott has taught college photography, has led workshops in the US and Europe, is a guest lecturer and is a working commercial photographer. Both Niki and Scott are passionate about art and love helping others refine their skills while guiding them to find their own muse in life.
