This Workshop is filled. Please contact Todd Bonita (contact information below) if you wish to be placed on the waiting list in case of cancellations.

Join American landscape painter Donald Jurney on a 4 day plein air painting and museum adventure in and around the hills and valleys of Vermont. Perkinsville and Chester, Vermont were locales for some of the best works by Willard Metcalf (1858-1925). We will find some of his chosen sites and paint and learn together along the Black and Little Williams Rivers, all dominated by Hawks Mountain. The workshop will begin with a visit and museum talk at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA. Donald will discuss a number of the paintings, speaking of particular compositions, techniques and moods that we will consider during our painting sessions. Through demonstrations, discussions, critiques and hands on painting side-by-side in the field, Donald will show us how to observe the Vermont landscape through the eyes of an artist and further our understanding of the language of painting.

Twelve rooms at the Inn at Weathersfield in Weathersfield, VT have been blocked specifically for this June workshop and will serve as the base camp for our four-day adventure. The Inn is listed as among the best in the U.S. and has a restaurant and Tavern of great reputation. It is recommended that you book early, as rooms are on a first come-first-serve basis. There are other accommodations available nearby if necessary.

To reserve a spot in this workshop, please email Todd Bonita at or call (603) 819-9100. This workshop is limited to fifteen participants and is expected to fill.
