Elio's Funtastic Columbia River Gorge plein air Workshop

Hello painters,
Elio's Columbia River Gorge Workshop quickly approaches and he still has some spots left. I'm looking forward to learning and painting again this year with Elio, he is a great guy, who is so free with his knowledge and his excitement is contagious we painted from sunrise tell sunset on multiple occasions last year.
Breathtaking views! What else can you say about this wonderful location. Simply one of the most spectacular places I have ever painted.
The focus of this workshops will be painting on location from direct observation.
Training the eye to better understand the concepts of composition, design and color harmony is a vital aspect of painting outdoors. You will learn to address shape, edge, value and impressionistic color to indicate the outdoor landscape.
His goal as an instructor is to give his students the foundation necessary to express themselves .
Elio's second annual Columbia River Gorge Workshop approaches. I absolutely had a blast last year painting from sunrise to sunset with some of you and I am looking forward to another paint FILLED week.
Just like last year the workshop "officially" ends around 4 but anyone interested in burning the candle at both ends can stay and paint till sunset or just sit back and watch.
July 13-17
The Tuition is $450.00 for five days 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday with a break for lunch. Each class will start with a demonstration, followed by individual instruction at each student's easel. To Register online and for more info regarding this workshop click
