Plein Air on the Santa Cruz 2019

Join us for the second annual retreat for plein air artists at Rancho Santa Cruz in beautiful southern Arizona. Check in on Saturday November 2nd, explore the ranch and surroundings. Sunday November 3rd, join Tom Blazier, a leading southwest oil painter, for a workshop entitled “Principles for Successful Outdoor Painting” in the morning, followed by a paint out with continuing instruction. A variety of paint-outs at nearby locations and artists gatherings will continue through the week. On Friday November 8th, hang your art in the exclusive exhibition at Tubac Center for the Arts, a two-week show, and enjoy an artists’ reception with awards. Prizes up to $500 cash value.

 In 2018, half of the artists participating in the retreat sold artwork through TCA, and the RSC gallery. This year enrollment will be limited, so apply early. Packages available with and without lodging at the ranch. Returning participants receive 10% off cost of lodging.
