Join Chris for a workshop this year.

Workshops with Chris Morel

“I was really learning to see color, light, atmosphere, and the four seasons directly from life—and everything it encompasses. When you go outside to paint, you don’t have time to dilly-dally or overthink things. It creates a tremendous editing process in your head and gets you down to the essentials.” -Chris Morel

Hello Friends,
The tradition continues!!! The annual Fall Workshop has become a tremendous success. I wish to invite you to participate in this great plein air painting workshop. I will again teach my 3 day Plein Air workshop in the mountains outside of Taos NM, September 17-19, 2019.

This workshop will take place in the heart of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains just 19 miles south of Taos. The workshop is for all skill levels from beginner to professional. We work outside all week.

I will do demos to show you how to get started and then we will all get going. I’ll focus individually on helping you improve from whatever skill level you are currently at to the next level. We will touch on all aspects of painting outside: from choosing subject matter, composition, mixing colors, to seeing your subject and laying the paint down.

All you will need to bring is a great attitude, a desire to learn to paint from nature and your supplies, of course (I’ll send a materials list to all those attending).

September is the most beautiful time of year in northern New Mexico, with the turning of the Aspen and Cottonwood trees, crisp mountain mornings, perfect blue skies, mountain trout streams and endless subject matter.

The cost of the workshop is $400 for 3 days with a $140 deposit to hold your space. There is lodging available in the area or take the 30 minute drive from Taos each day.

Reserve your place!
