Andrew Orr Artist Workshops

Andrew Orr


Set among the rolling hills of Northern Vermont and in view of Mont Pinnacle across the border in Quebec, Andrew Orr will be conducting workshops at his home and studio, Meadowland Farm in Richford, Vermont.  
The twelve acre property offers much material for the artist from which to work; open meadows, a brook set in the forest, views into Canada, a pond, barns and an extensive perennial garden are all part of the setting. Close by the Missisquoi River, covered bridges on the Trout River, sweeping views of Jay Peak and neighboring properties are all part of the magic and charm of the area. The opportunities for painting subjects are endless!

The classes will be kept small so as to offer much individualized attention. There is a working classroom for inclimate weather as well as bathroom and kitchen facilities on site.   The workshops will focus on plein air painting as a foundation for more completed and finished paintings in the studio. Each workshop will offer demonstrations, time for individual painting and group critiques.

Medium: Oil

Classes and workshops are offered in the medium of oil. Those who work in acrylic are welcomed.

Skill Level: Intermediate/Pro

Classes will be mostly plein air with an emphasis on using plein air studies as a means of a foundation for more finished studio work. It would be best to have some basic knowledge of oil paints, color mixing and the process of painting on location. (A basic course for oil painting will be designed for those who are not as familiar with the medium, color mixing and the like. This would be a weekly class held as a series.)

Class Size: 3-5 Students
