Photography /Plein-Air Painting Workshop

Taught by Scott Williams & Niki Gulley

New Orleans, LA –

October 22nd – 26th, 2014

New Orleans brings to mind Mardi Gras with it’s elaborate costumes and ornate masks, but there’s much more to the crescent city. It is a place with a rich history steeped in tradition and a distinct culture like few places on earth. Now imagine working on your photography and painting skills in an environment with such visual stimulation and artistic opportunities.

Whether you are a painter or photographer, this unique workshop has been designed to allow you to hone your skills and expand your creativity, all while you further your artistic voice. Choosing which aspect interests you, we will help guide you to capture the spirit and character of this amazing city.

From the backdrop of Jackson Square to the majestic grandeur of the Garden District, from the macabre semblance of the cemeteries to the old world charm of the plantations, we will explore the many sights that the city has to offer. Along with an opportunity to sample some of the best cuisine that New Orleans has to offer!

Admission is limited, so we encourage you to enroll as soon as possible.
There will also be space open for non-participating partners at reduced rates on a limited basis.
