Artists in Residence


Plein Air Painting Classes: Have you ever wanted to learn to paint plein air (out-doors)? Painting outside can be a bit overwhelming for the beginner.  We will teach the basics of painting outdoors in a simple step-by-step class.

Instructors: Lawrence & Lynne Chrapliwy  (read their bios here)

All painting and drawing classes at the Sands-Willets House are an opportunity for the artist to learn to paint and draw from real life.  There are many things to paint here, including the home, the barn, trees, landscapes, flowers, birds, antique farm tools, and still lifes.  Students will be given a list of supplies to bring  to class.
