February, 25, 2013 — TRIP CANCELLED DUE TO POLITICAL INSTABILITY
Our painting trip to paint Russia has been cancelled.
We were notified today (2/25/13) by our partners in Russia that they are seeing a vast amount of political instability and hostility toward Americans in Russia at the moment. This is highly unusual and may pass. Though it would probably be safe to continue the trip, we cannot jeopardize the safety of our group, therefore we have decided to cancel.
Please sign up for notifications in the event we decide to conduct this trip in the future.
PleinAir Magazine Takes You to Russia
August 22-September 7, 2013
A rare opportunity to paint and study painting in Russia with two master painters, one of whom is a professor at the Surikov Art Institute (part of the Russian Academy, founded by Catherine the Great). In August and September of 2013, we’ll visit artists and museums, paint in Moscow and St. Petersburg, and spend 10 days in intensive study in the Great Ustyug, a well-preserved historic area in the north of Russia, with beautiful landscapes and traditional Russian cabins. This is not a workshop, but a transformative event, offering strong one-on-one direction from Russian masters. An experience of a lifetime for painters, where you’ll upgrade your skills to a higher level. Attendance is limited. Reservations required by May 2013.
