Program #2317ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Discover how to paint and draw anything without pain. Our delightful instructor teaches you how to render outdoor elements with ease, sharing secrets of color systems, brush-stroke techniques and water use. View nature from an artist's perspective during two field trips to Yosemite National Park. Experience painting "in the wild," learning to paint mountains, tree and waterfalls in the field. Join us in exploring new ways to be creative.


Highlights

• Embark on a bus excursion to some of the Yosemite Valley’s most beautiful sites, including Tunnelview, Bridalveil Fall and Sentinel Bridge.
• Delight in an opportunity to paint “en plein air” in the heart of Yosemite.
• Paint daily and improve your watercolor technique with the help of an art instructor who offers tips on composition, color and more.

Program Notes

Basic art supplies are furnished. Participants may bring their own supplies to supplement if they like, but it certainly is not necessary. We are happy to provide student grade supplies and some supplies can even be taken home. Participants may like to bring a collapsible stool or chair to sit on while painting in the park. However, with notice, we have some for loan.

Activity Notes

Some walking during field trips; some uneven terrain.
