9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Join Susan Ploughe ( for a few days in the country, away from the daily stress. Let your creative spirit flow, we will take care of the rest. Discover how to create paintings that are uniquely yours, rather than mere copies of photographs. Hone your observational and painting abilities, producing animal paintings that are fresh and original. Develop your personal expression as you choose dynamic points of view, use color to promote interest, vary brushwork and backgrounds for different effects, and capture the essence of your subject by eliminating unnecessary detail. These skills will transfer to any subject matter.

A variety of painting approaches are demonstrated and discussed each day. Explore each concept with Susan’s assistance. Tackle inventive exercises that expand your artistry and promote creativity. Expect to take home a series of studies to inspire you when designing your own projects.

Susan is an award-winning painter and an enthusiastic instructor who loves helping students develop their skills. She is a Signature member of the American Impressionist Society and the Oil Painters of America. Her artwork can be found in many private and corporate collections, and she has been featured in Fine Art Connoisseur, American Art Collector, and International Artist magazine.
