On Sunday, students will meet in Trinidad for a full day of plein air painting. Jim will help each artist understand how to see values, warm and cool color and light. He'll give individual instruction and guidance to each student as their paintings progress. Enrollment is limited and we expect this class to fill up, so register early!
DATE AND TIME: July 12 & 13 / 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. PRICE: $200

"McVicker's light-filled, airy representations of the landscape capture more than his love for the Northern California scenery. They describe those fleeting moments in life where everything is perfect, where harmony prevails and nature sings. By slowing us down enough to literally feel the flow of time as it caresses the earth, Jim McVicker's landscapes inspire his viewers to appreciate the landscape that one might otherwise take for granted. Through his brush, he becomes a teacher, presenting the lessons that the natural world can offer us."  Ken Weiderman, First Street Gallery, Eureka, CA
