Painting Workshop

  • 1000 Hampton River Club Marina Drive St. Simons, GA, 31522 United States (map)

Join us for a three-night plein air painting workshop on Little St. Simons Island, hosted by local artist Peggy Everett

A highly-respected artist  and instructor, Peggy is known as a great teacher for all skill levels.  Peggy will teach color mixing, composition, value changes, and techniques used in Plein Air to achieve a successful painting.

Peggy tells us, "I have been teaching plein air for 25 years.  The more the student knows about what they are painting along with how to portray it, the better the painting.  Also, I may note that "never ever" painters are the most successful."


Don't miss this opportunity to connect with nature on a pristine barrier island.  Not only will you and your companions have access to the eco lodge's facilities and naturalist-led activities, but you'll also have the opportunity to learn to capture it's beauty to take home with you.  Non-painting spouses and friends are welcome and, rather than paint, will be able to enjoy the island's many naturalist-led activities like kayaking, fishing, birding, beach combing and hiking.  

THREE-NIGHT ALL-INCLUSIVE PACKAGE: $2,350** (Includes Workshop fee of $400)
