kelly sullivanWith the impending arrival of summer weather, award-winning painter Kelly Sullivan will teach a weekend intensive Plein Air Workshop in the beautiful country landscape of New Hope, PA.

Plein air, which means ‘open air’, is painting in real-time response using natural light. Sullivan will lead students in capturing natural light and the surrounding landscape of the historical grounds of Hotel Du Village in New Hope on June 4th to June 5th, with bolster sessions on June 6th & June 7th.

The weekend intensive workshop can accommodate up to 20 participants and is open to all skill levels. The workshop will introduce the basics of outdoor painting to beginning painters, as well as reinforce and evaluate the more complex decisions made by the advanced painter. To help students learn in style, the workshop includes access to beautiful grounds with creeks, ponds, old stone buildings, tall trees – AND, morning coffee & tea service, all day beverages, access to bathrooms, bountiful and delicious farm-to-table lunches, and end of day wine and cheese critiques.
Compliment the weekend session with two additional days of demos, painting, and critiques. The two-day bolster session is only open to students who takes the weekend workshop or students who have taken Kelly’s previous oil painting classes. The two-day bolster session will have less formal instruction time, and more time to practice.

The class is open to beginner and intermediate painters. To register or learn more, contact Majell Yerenburg at or visit
