    Richie says, “If you paint with no fear and a smile on your face, you can come away from this workshop looser and more confident in your watercolor artistry”.

    Whether you’re painting indoors or out, these tips for using composition, shape, value, color, and edge treatment to draw the viewer’s eye to your center of interest remain the same. Isn’t that every artist’s goal?

    Come to the historic artist’s colony of Taos and enjoy the valuable lessons, quaint surroundings, comaraderie and beautiful autumn season in northern New Mexico.

    Seating is limited, so reserve yours today.

    To Register


    Email: or

    Phone: Beth Cooper 720-933-4022

    Maximum Number of Participants: 12 advanced beginner to advanced


    Plein air painting is often used to gather resource material that can later be used in the development of a studio painting. The goal of this workshop will be to explore this process. We will spend the first two days of this workshop outside, painting, sketching, and photographing possible subjects. The last three days will be spent primarily in the studio examining ideas and creating a studio painting with the information we gathered during the first two days. There will be demonstrations in oil each day and Power Point presentations to clarify the concepts we will be covering. Each participant will receive ample and supportive individual coaching and critique. Handouts will include a course schedule and written material about the topics covered. The workshop will be taught in oil but artists who are skilled in their medium other than oil would be welcome.

     How to Sign Up: 
    For more information and to register for the workshop contact Beth Cooper, Bluebird Studios at (720)933-4022 or email or
