Deepen your observational skills and express your responses to Pepperwood’s verdant and blossoming spring landscape. Explore plein air painting with artist and Santa Rosa Junior College instructor Marsha Connell. Beginning painters will learn basics of working in the field. Experienced painters may expand their repertoire with elements of realism, impressionism, expressionism, and more, with support for finding their own voice. Demonstrations given in oil but students may use any media.

Marsha’s expressive and colorist paintings convey the spirit of place and invite a consideration of the inner landscape. A gifted educator, Marsha has taught through numerous venues including Sonoma State University, the California Arts Project, the Plein Rain Painters of Juneau, Alaska, and the Rush Studio in Taos, New Mexico and San Miguel Allende, Mexico.
