 INSTRUCTOR: ALLEN KRIEGSHAUSER, a graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute in painting and printmaking.  I have been painting for over 50 years and was recently a featured artist in “Arts in America", on PBS and was a featured artist in the August issue of Plein Air Magazine.  I actively compete in plein air competitions across the US (14 events 2015-16 including an invited artist at:  Door County 2015 & 2017, Wayne PA Plein Air 2017,  Solmon's Island 2017, Plein Air Texas, Easels in Frederick & Plein Air Richmond 2016 & 2018, Paint The Town 2018).

WORKSHOP STATEMENT:  This workshop aims to offer straight forward actionable information, for all levels, indispensable how-to instruction necessary to create a solid plein air painting.  50 years painting experience will be shared including the do’s as well as what not to do.  This workshop will provide an arsenal of practical technical advice so that you will have a quiver of skills essential for delivering a confident structured painting while removing the paralyzing frustration of what to do next with your painting.
