Erik Koeppel: 3 Day Plein Air Workshop

Saturday, March 17th through Monday, March 19th from 10am to 3pm.

Cost is $475 per person. Class limited to 15 students.

Skill level of intermediate thru advanced.

Erik Koeppel is a traditional New England based landscape painter who has become a leader in the revival of the techniques and philosophy of the Hudson River School. Regardless of your level of experience, the goal of this workshop will be to provide you with a thorough introduction to traditional landscape painting.

We will attempt to place ourselves in the mindset of the great Landscape Painters of the past. Students will discover a deeper understanding of how these old masters approached plein-air painting, how they composed the complexity of nature before them, and how they used a layered approach to greater capture qualities of space and form in the landscape. The three days will be intensive learning, including a demo daily, and a lot of paint time practicing techniques learned.

To register for the workshop, please fill out a registration form and submit via e-mail or mail. A deposit of $225 is required to reserve your space. Balance is due February 17, 2018. You can mail a check payable to Shadows-on-the-Teche, to The Shadows, 317 East Main Street, New Iberia, LA 70560; or call Pat Kahle at (337) 369-6446 to make payment via VISA or Master Card.
