Plein Air Perspectives: Duo Artist Plein Air Workshop with Brienne Brown and Karl Eric Leitzel - October 14-17, 2018

Banner for plein air workshop 2018

Karl and Brienne invite you to join us for this workshop that covers nearly all painting mediums. Brienne paints and instructs primarily in watercolor while Karl uses both oils and acrylics.

The workshop will be run through the Green Drake Gallery and Arts Center in Millheim, Pennsylvania, and based out of the Green Drake and the hosting Centre Mills B&B. Centre Mills is offering special rates for those coming in from outside the area, and there are other lodging choices in the area, as well.

We will paint outdoors as much as possible, both at the B&B and at several other nearby locations. Open the linked PDF for more details and a registration form.


Classes and Workshops

Art students of all ages enjoy Karl's relaxed style of sharing his methods and tips. He typically talks though his demonstrations so participants can both see and hear in order to more effectively learn. Karl keeps materials, supplies, and "rules" simple, and focuses on getting the most out of the least. Unless a class or workshop is specifically geared to a single medium, Karl will demonstrate on both oils and acrylics.
