PAUL SMITHS - White Pine Camp on Osgood Pond will host a plein air painting workshop with pastelist Diane Leifheit and watercolor and oil painter Tim Fortune for five days from Sept. 23 to 28.
Leifheit and Fortune will demonstrate methods of painting outdoors, provide instruction in composition, design and preparation for painting the landscape using pastel, oil and watercolor. Workshop artists will paint the landscape and participate in day's-end critiques.
The public is invited Thursday, Oct. 6, 3-6 p.m. to a Meet-the-Artists Showcase Reception, which will feature a guided tour of the camp and a discussion of plein air painting. The lodge will feature the works of Leifheit and Fortune and the working artists.
Diane Leifheit teaches a plein air painting workshop.
"The camp is is a dream for the plein air artist," Leifheit said in a press release of the 1907 White Pine Camp. "Views of the lake, the tea house and boathouses are iconic Adirondack visions."
"Painting outdoors can be challenging, but the results are authentic and capture the spirt of the land," Fortune said in a press release.
The Adirondack Plein Air 5-Day Workshop costs $400. It is sponsored in part by a Developing Community Arts Grant administered by the Arts Council of Northern Adirondacks, funded by the New York Council on the Arts.
