Watercolor Weekend - Plein-Air Painting in Yosemite Valley with the Yosemite Conservancy

Yosemite has inspired generations of artists, from early painters to modern-day iPad illustrators. During this three-day watercolor workshop, you’ll get to tap into the long tradition of creating art in — and inspired by — the park.

Join painter John Hewitt to spend a long weekend learning and painting with fellow artists. Each day, you’ll build and hone plein air techniques, as you capture the colors, light, forms and feelings of spring in Yosemite Valley. Throughout the workshop, you’ll benefit from conversations and check-ins with your instructor and peers, while developing pieces that reflect your personal Yosemite experience and perspective.
