Join Joe Sweeney for an outdoor, in-person, plein air painting retreat in beautiful Cape May, New Jersey! Experience small town hospitality while painting Cape May Point, the Cove with sweeping vistas, Cape May Lighthouse, and Sunset Beach. Instruction includes tips on choosing a prime location, reading the weather and light at a particular time of day, and setting up a landscape palette.  Instruction is geared towards oil, acrylic and pastel, but experienced watercolorists are welcome. Health-safety measures, including social-distancing and masking where required, will be practiced. Note: Students are responsible for their own travel arrangements. 

Register by: September 16
