Plein Air Painting at Laguna Beach with Jeff Horn
Presented by Sedona Arts Center
and Laguna College of Art and Design
July 15 - 18, 2013
Join Jeff Horn for four days of painting in the landscape at beautiful Laguna Beach Locations. There are two aspects to good painting. One is grounded in an understanding of sound basic principles: Design and Composition, Drawing, Value and Color Theory. The other is the painter's personal vision, insight and inspiration. This workshop will emphasize the first aspect and is therefore open to all levels of painters. "There are no advanced problems just advanced solutions." Come paint, have some fun and grow in the process!
Hosted by Laguna College of Art and Design, this workshop will meet for the first morning session and final afternoon session in a painting studio at the College. This studio will also be a back-up painting location in case of a bad weather day.

About Jeff Horn
"I prefer to paint directly from nature and I love being outdoors where I can see, hear, feel, smell and even taste the scene around me. For me, the painting is a translation of nature and my experience of it. If I am successful, I take the viewer with me to feel the moment. I believe good painting is not a slavish copy of visual details, but an emotional response to a moment in nature."
