This three-day workshop with oil painter Kathie Odom takes place in the beautiful Sedona landscape. Learn about location choices and how to identify your composition. Choosing a unique subject matter can help you make it your own. You will learn strategies for how to start an outdoor painting and (as important) when to stop.

Through demonstration onsite and individual attention at the easel Kathie delivers the techniques that she uses to produce award winning paintings as she travels around the country to plein air festivals and events and paints in her home terrain of Tennessee.


October 11–13, 2017

Payment Options: Students may pay in full or choose the payment-plan option during registration. The payment plan requires a non-refundable $125 deposit with the balance due 30 days before the first day of the workshop.

About Kathie Odom

Kathie Odom is proud to be from the great state of Tennessee, and especially proud to live in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.

"It's hard to ignore beauty when it happens," Kathie is fond of saying. So she keeps her car packed with all the painting supplies needed for the road. Kathie has received several awards over the last few years from plein air events across the nation.
