In conjunction with the exhibition Milton Avery, learn and practice the art of painting en plein air (in the open air) in the Hartford area where Avery spent his formative years. Accomplished landscape painter and instructor Susan Leggitt leads the weekend workshop.

The two-day workshop begins at the scenic Wethersfield Cove followed by a day in lovely Bushnell Park, Downtown Hartford.
