Join artist Kathy Wipfler for a plein air painting workshop Friday, July 8, Saturday, July 9 and Sunday, July 10 from 9 AM to 4 PM!

This 3-day outdoor painting workshop is designed to help each student with their individual growth. Outdoor painting can be daunting & Kathy aims to help each student at their own level.

Kathy will do several demonstration paintings to show students some of the basics of starting a painting, simplifying the subject, & color mixing.

The class will do two paintings each day, a morning piece & an afternoon piece. Kathy will share the knowledge, theory, technique & shortcuts she has learned in her 40 years of painting on location. 

You will receive a lot of individual attention!

Registration Fee – $225 (10% Brinton Member discount)

Kathy Wipfler

Kathy Wipfler headshotOriginally from rural central California, Kathy Wipfler moved to Jackson, Wyoming in 1980 to learn to paint en plein air. With help from mentors including Conrad Schweiring, John Clymer,Greg McHuron, Hollis Williford, and Milo “Skip” Whitcomb, her 36 years of painting the landscape in all weather conditions has seasoned her view of the natural world, and the purpose of laying a brush on the canvas.

Wipfler has spent countless hours riding with the “real deal” cowboys of Wyoming, and patiently watching the abundant wildlife of the area.

Her work is included in many collections, most notably the Whitney Gallery of Western Art at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, and the permanent collection of the National Museum of Wildlife art, Jackson, Wy.

Wipfler’s drawing titled “Bruin Trio” was awarded the prestigious Bob Kuhn Award at the 2015 Western Visions Show at the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
