I wanted to share a great opportunity with everyone. My friend Charles Muench is teaching a workshop in the Sierras this June and there are a couple of spots still available. Charles is a highly collected and award winning artist. His solo shows have been sellouts for the last few years and he lives in the Sierras and paints in all four seasons outdoors there.
Charles awards include an Award of Excellence from the Oil Painters of America in 1999, the Gold Medal at the San Louis Obispo Plein Air competition in 2002, Artist Choice in 2003 at Telluride Plein Air, Best of Show at Telluride Plein Air in 2006, Best of Show at the Crystal Cove Invitational in 2007, First Place at the Joan Irvine Smith Heritage Exhibition 2008, The Collectors Choice Award at Maynard Dixon Country Show in 2005 and 2008, The Edgar Payne Award for best landscape at the California Art Club Gold Medal Show in 2010, and the Southwest Art Magazine Award of Excellence at the California Art Club Gold Medal Show in 2011, and the Irvine Museum Purchase Award at the California Gold Medal Exhibition 2012.
Hope Valley Spring Workshop
Four Day Workshop Painting the Eastern Sierra
Spring time in Hope Valley.
June 9th – June 12th
Not only is Hope Valley one of the most beautiful places in all of the Sierra, it is also one of the most accessible. Easy walking to great scenery!
Wildflowers, snow capped peaks, and the meandering West Carson River.
Accommodations are available in Markleeville, Hope Valley, and Woodfords.
Charles will make the most of each day- demonstrations, painting, critique, and taking in the gestalt of a group of artists painting together.
E-mail Charles for deposit and reservation information, materials list, accommodations, and any questions you might have.
