The Master Class is offered as part of a three day Celebration of Art which also features the AWA Annual Member Show and Juried Competition Exhibition, a Plein Air Paint Out and the Opening Reception of the AWA Museum Show, "Visions of the Southwest." The events will be held in Tucson and Tubac, Arizona November 2-4, 2012.
The Master Class includes a Plein Air Paint Out on November 3rd at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Participants can paint or watch other artists at work throughout the 21 acre nature preserve, zoo and botanical garden. The Paint Out is followed on Sunday by a day-long atelier where Master Artists will offer demonstrations and critique.
