We will meet at Central Park West in Carmel, Indiana.
Central Park is a nice setting for classic landscape painting.
Class is Limited to 9 students so there is plenty of time for individual instruction.
Participants should have some experience plein air painting.
Workshop will be held rain or shine.
If weather forces us indoors, the workshop will be held at The Art Studio of Carmel in the Carmel Arts and Design District.
Carmel is located just north of Indianapolis and is abundant with shops, galleries and restaurants.
If you wish to extend your stay, come early and enjoy the 4th of July parade and fireworks of Carmelfest.
Indianapolis is home to two great art museums, the renowned Eiteljorg Museum and the Indianapolis Museum of Art located in Newfields, a beautiful nature park that is a favorite destination for plein air painters.
What past students are saying:
"I have taken a handful of workshops and each was great. But none provided the detail of a process and practice that makes sense as a way to approach painting so well."
"Consider this a ringing endorsement for Troy Kilgore's upcoming workshops! His workshop last year resulted in dramatic improvement in both seeing and painting."
"Thanks again for the workshop! I have taken others and classes but I can seriously and honestly say I learned more and took away more in yours than any other; excellent job Sir!”
"I want to let you know how much I learned from your two day workshop. It far surpassed my expectations. You were able to relate the concepts of value, color, temperature and design in a way that I was able to understand and utilize in the future. Thank you so much."
