13 Days | 12 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.
Enjoy Treehaven’s vibrant fall colors as you focus on the rich visual experience that its woods, fields and shorelines have to offer. Demonstrations and instruction in plein-air sketching, taking color notes, simple painting techniques, composition and use of light and shadow help you identify and appreciate the species native to the area. Through fields trips and an excursion to a local museum, study past nature artists, explore personal aesthetics and gain insight into your own growth as an artist.


Highlights

• Learn the elements of design and the principles of basic watercolor and drawing in a relaxed setting.
• Study composition, contrast, line, texture, form, rhythm, repetition, value and color under the direction of a noted artist/instructor and apply them to your own unique style.
• Take day trips to northern lakes, bogs, forests and waterfalls at Dells of the Eau Claire, as well as the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum’s annual Birds in Art exhibit.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Moderate walks on uneven terrain for up to a mile. Sitting outdoors for up to two hours.

Coordinated by University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
