August 18, 2017: Mary joined me painting across the highway at the Pegram Truss Railroad Bridge early in the morning. We both love Idaho's bright greens and clear waters, especially in the mornings. Yeah, the light changes rapidly but the color remains until about noon. It's important to get...
June 2, 2017: Fremont county has many iconic places. One of my favorites is the Frostop Restaurant in Ashton. It is easily recognized by its large rotating mug of root beer and the statue of a grizzly bear in the parking lot. It is not an easy place to paint because it is at the intersection of...
May 27, 2017: Sand Creek Wildlife Management Area. We tried this spot last fall but due to weather conditions it didn't work out. However when looking for a scenic area to paint, it is easy to find one at the Sand Creek Wildlife Management Area north of St. Anthony. We were joined by...
May 18, 2017: The 3rd turn on the way to the Idaho Art Lab. Teton Hwy. & 400 N. This location was selected because of an observation that our drive to work is filled with wonderful locations. The 3rd turn on the way to the Idaho Art Lab overlooks an irrigation ditch crisscrossed with...
May 7, 2017: Henry's Fork Greenway, South Trail. Kara and I enjoy the local greenway trail and sometimes get carried away watching the wildlife and forget to get out the camera and the paints. We've been waiting for a beautiful day like this but the weather has been so unpredictable we find...
We are a not-for-profit with a mission to promote the visual arts and provide opportunities to people of any age, ability or economic status to engage in the arts by offering art education programs, gallery exhibits & a gathering place for residents to be involved in the arts as part of their daily life.
We will be visiting Craters of the Moon to scout it out for a 2018 retreat. We will continue our weekly plein air field trips which go to Mesa Falls Recreation Area, Harriman State Park and other nearby State Parks & National Monuments.
Wondering how we can offer this retreat at such a reasonable rate? We are partially donor and grant funded. We are seeking a bus maintenance sponsor to help us keep the bus free for retreat, field trips and outreach around the east Idaho and west Yellowstone Park region.
" I found the Yellowstone Retreat to be a wonderful experience. It is an ideal opportunity to immerse in nature and art. The naturalists' perspectives were insightful and helped us appreciate the geology, animals, and natural history. It was great to learn and share with other artists as well." - Sue Tyler, artist and art educator
"I saw the land differently, in its many colors, as though just noticing an autumn in Vermont. With every activity, every conversation, and every television commercial, our brains form new connections. I had a new awareness of the landscape ..."
