At the Edge of the Grand Canyon: A Destination Oil – Painting Adventure and Art Retreat

SPRING, TX – 9 Aug, 2016 – Noted and celebrated artist, Paula Swain, will lead a small group of participants on a weeklong art experience at the Grand Canyon. Working collaboratively with Sedona Joe’s Picture Framers and Gallery of Old Town Spring, Texas, Ms. Swain will host a special winter Grand Canyon art experience for oil painters of all skill levels. The Grand Canyon Winter Art Workshop will be held at the Grand Canyon’s South Rim, February 12-18, 2017

This art retreat will explore topics such as composition, sketching, techniques, and color.  “Grand Canyon in winter is spectacular” stated Swain “This is a unique opportunity for those who want a different perspective of Grand Canyon and inspiration from the changing canyon colors that come with the winter season.”

Workshop sessions have been artfully designed for all skill levels from beginners to experienced artists.  Paula will share her unique vision of creating extraordinary landscape paintings.  The setting of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon is highlighted by exceptional vistas, Ponderosa Pines, Pinion Pines, and Juniper trees.   Participants will have opportunities for Plein Air sessions at the Canyon’s edge, photography, and art inspiring, scenic walks or hiking on walkways and trails with one-of-kind views.  

Bryan Melton, owner of Sedona Joe’s and Grand Canyon enthusiast stated “I have hiked in the Canyon for years, and even short walks along the Canyon’s top rim sidewalks offer majestic views and opportunities for incredible pictures. Especially in winter, when there are fewer park visitors.”

The studio for the workshop is located on the first floor of the Thunderbird Lodge at the rim of the Canyon.  Thunderbird Lodge is in a prominent location in the center of the historic district of Grand Canyon Village.  Within walking distance is the historic El Tovar Lodge, Bright Angel Lodge, restaurants, gifts shops, Kolb Studio, Vercamps Visitor Center and the Bright Angel Trail Head.

Registration for the 6 days and 6 nights workshop is an inclusive style package that includes instruction, basic materials, private deluxe accommodations, and all meals.
