What you'll do

We will begin our three hour session by either meeting at Bay Point Park along the Mississippi River in Red Wing, MN to have a three hour Plein Air painting experience, or, in case of rain, we will meet at The Artist Sanctuary, located in a historic church on the National Historic Register to have a three hour indoor painting class. Each person will have their own 11"x14" canvas, easel, paint brushes, acrylic paint, apron and any other supplies provided, so you can just arrive and not worry about a thing! You can have all kinds of talent, or none at all - no pressure here - our goal is to have a fun, social painting experience so all skill levels, ages, and abilities are welcome. I will guide you every step of the way, step by step, in a technique of looking at objects and nature and colors in a different way, which can be utilized long after your class is over and you have returned home. Your food and beverages are welcome, and complimentary refreshments and snacks will be supplied.

Learn more about Heidi

Heidi

I am an artist who enjoys painting Plein Air out in beautiful, natural settings in our community as well as structured classes indoors. I have taught art classes for over 20 years to all ages and abilities using many different forms of artistic creation. I am confident that anyone, regardless of experience or ability, can learn the basic techniques to burst beyond what we think we are capable of creating, and utilize these same skills far into the future. I've lived in some very beautiful locations in the United States, traveled to a few other countries, and have settled in a picturesque city along the Mississippi River. I've owned art galleries and antique stores, and continue to work in the arts. My artwork has been featured in magazines, media, solo and group art shows and galleries.

What's included

Food
I will provide energy/protein bars, string cheese, small bags of chips. Please let me know if you have dietary restrictions
Drinks
I will provide bottled water, and will be happy to provide the soft drinks of your personal preference.
Equipment
I will provide 11x14 canvas, paint, aprons, brushes, paint water, easels, paper towels, and supplies.

Where you'll be

Bay Point Park is along the Mississippi River with a walking path, play equipment, park benches, sculptures, picnic tables and a covered meeting area. Boat houses and docks flank the shoreside and has a perfect views of He Mni Can (aka Barn Bluff) Public restrooms are easily accessible.

More tips

If it rains, instead of Bay Point Park, or if painting indoors is preferred, The Artist Sanctuary has a few stairs to get into the main level. Enter at the 6th St. side which is at street level.
