Join LightScapes on our Spring excursion to the Hudson River for a three-day, plein-air weekend workshop in the quaint village of Cold Spring, New York. Arrival time is Tuesday, May 13th at 10:00am. Departure is Thursday, May 15th at 5:00pm.


We will stay at the elegant Pig Hill Inn nestled on the river in an eclectic, artsy town. LightScapes is excited to offer you a rejuvenating, creative workshop away with other like-minded artists.  


The Pig Hill Inn was built in 1825 and the rooms are decorated with antiques and high-quality reproduction period pieces. The majority of the rooms have queen or king-size beds, and all the rooms have private baths (two  of them boast Jacuzzi tubs). Each room has an air conditioning/heating unit, and they have tall gorgeous windows if you choose the fresh air instead. You can start each day with freshly brewed coffee, gourmet teas, homemade baked goods, fresh fruit, and a wide range of breakfast options.


This mini retreat will begin on Tuesday at 10:00am when we will gather in the gazebo on the pier for our first art lesson of many over our stay. We will work in a small group and have the opportunity to learn from each other. I pride myself in offering a valuable fine arts education, along with a fun, intimate experience for all included.  


LightScapes will supply New Wave Plein Air easels and comfy chairs to relax in while watching demonstrations. Lessons and one-on-one guidance in our outdoor classroom are scheduled from 10:00am till 5:00pm with a one-hour break for lunch. Please bring your media of choice. I recommend oils, pastels, and watercolors. 


I will offer an online presentation in July to answer all your questions and concerns. Sign-ups will begin that evening. If you are already 100% onboard, please join our retreat waitlist below and we will accept sign-ups on a first-come, first-serve basis.


This workshop is a great opportunity to experience a LightScapes Studio retreats in the U.S. and it may give you the desire to travel abroad with LightScapes Studio to Pienza, Italy, in Spring 2025.
