In preparation for the VINS Third Annual en Plein Air Painting Festival, ArtisTree and VINS have partnered to offer a workshop for art teachers. This year VINS seeks to invite greater student participation in the plein air painting competition and inclusion in the exhibition.

This 2-hour workshop will outline an educational toolkit for teachers to involve students in the VINS program at their own schools this fall.  The program will also offer guidance on submitting student work and for bringing students to VINS during the competition week to observe and paint the beautiful Upper Valley landscapes alongside artists from all over New England.

Additionally, a plein air painting demonstration will be presented with tips on how to instruct students in this “open air” painting method. The workshop will close with time to paint en plein air in the beautiful fields and trails at ArtisTree.
