***We're testing a few early dates, in full-swing for April. Feel free to reach out to schedule in advance and we may open up a date for you weather permitting. Cooler weather = slower painting. Longer dry times. If you see a warm streak the week ahead of your trip, reach out and suggest the best day for you and friends. -Ryan @@@ You will be immersed in the travel journaling lifestyle to record your time here at the lake. 1. You will choose a handmade watercolor sketchbook that you will paint in. All the watercolor supplies will be provided: travel brushes, journals, pencils, pens, and lots of vibrant colors designed to capture the pop and excitement of the day. 2. No matter your artist skill level, you'll shake off the painting jitters with a fun & creative intro-sketch card. 3. We will then move on to capture a planned experience that will showcase nature, panoramic views, a buzz of people, unique and/or historic structures, which may include any or all of these components depending on your perspective. From here I can begin to answer questions you may have and offer recommendations from composition, to colors, and more to allow for your own free form painting. 4. Finally we will take a quick drive around the lake for a few historical points. =) Wrap up the day with a memory that has many more layers than a photo & a skill you can continue to develop.

We will meet @ Copper Q for an intro-sketch is designed to get your creative juices flowing. Then...

Guests will be walking a medium grade road and trail down to the lake. You may prefer to have a walking stick for the trail portion depending on your sure-footedness. But it's just a few minutes to our setup area to a unique spot with sun and shade. Comfortable shoes are a must, they may get dirty.
