ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Whether you love to dip a paintbrush into the bold colors of acrylics and oils or watercolors, or prefer to pick up a pencil to sketch, enjoy a week of creating art in the beautiful Hudson Valley region. Get pointers from art instructors on developing good composition, creating clean color, and learning tips about perspective and the effects of light. Choose your artistic specialty by date to learn more about your preferred medium, painting or drawing. Challenge yourself to create art more boldly and fearlessly — all levels of experience are welcome!


Highlights

• Choose your artistic focus by date and learn to improve your painting skills in acrylics, oils or watercolors, or focus on drawing and sketching.
• Admire the amazing sculptures of Pacem in Terris, a six-acre sculpture garden, and bring your sketchbook for an opportunity to draw in the gardens.
• Marvel at the views of the surrounding valleys and rural farmlands.
