Workshop Overview

Don’t miss this final class!

“I am completely in my element painting fall aspens!  As a Colorado Native, much of my year is balanced to make time to paint outdoors during the short but extraordinary window of fall colors. I have been painting aspens since the 1970’s and look forward to sharing years of experience with others.”


Mancos sculptor and painter Veryl Goodnight is offering a fall class on plein air painting, sharing her knowledge and experience with students and helping them develop a foundation in the fundamentals of painting outdoors.
