Brushes with Greatness: A “Plein Air” Watercolor Workshop

Take the landscape home with you

July 9–14, 2021

The boulder-strewn waters of the Blackfoot River? The Garnet peaks? The forests of Ponderosa pines? Whichever parts of the Montana landscape speak to you, guest artist George Van Hook will help you capture them in your art. He’s helped beginner and experienced painters alike improve on their technique and discover new talents. Van Hook will conduct this “plein air” watercolor workshop in a variety of eye-popping settings throughout The Resort. It’s a memorable way to learn from a true pro and take in the unforgettable surroundings at the same time. We promise your work of art will be one of your favorite souvenirs ever.

Van Hook is also available for private demonstrations or lessons.
