Thomas Kitts' "Plein Air Essentials Workshop". What a week it was! It was blistering hot, but Thomas and a couple workshop participants provided shade for us with 10x10 tents. I have often heard that Thomas is an excellent (and patient) teacher and he lived up to that reputation. He lectured, he demo-ed, he spent tons of time with each person, he worked through lunch and he answered every question. And, as if that weren't all enough, at the end of the final day he drew lots for us to have a chance to take home one of his great demos. How's this?--*I* won the demo from day one! I totally LOVED the workshop (slideshow below). If you get a chance to work with Thomas...my recommendation....well, do it!
