This course is designed to facilitate a deepening conversation with painting en plein air for beginning and intermediate oil painters.  Working outdoors and onsite allows the artist the opportunity to view the world with “fresh eyes” and an unfiltered experience.  In this three-day workshop, we will be exploring and refining the idea o Alla Prima (one strike) painting, recording our response to the environmental stimulation around us.  We will be working in and around the Traverse City area at locations to be determined.

Margo Burian has been working as a freelance illustrator since graduating from Kendall College of Art and Design with a B.F.A. in 1992.  Her commercial career, which has included many top-name national clients, has had a natural crossover for her – illustrator to fine artist – in her artwork.  Much of her “misspent” youth took place in Northern Michigan, where Margo developed a love for the serenity and beauty of the woods and the “Big Lake.”  Time and time again, she finds that she is still drawn to those places.  Margo exhibits her work throughout Michigan and enjoys teaching plein air workshops.  www.margoburian.net
