Debra Joy Groesser - Monterey, California Oil Painting Workshop

Debra Joy Groesser - Monterey, California
Sunday September 25 to Friday September 30, 2022


DAY 1: Sunday September 25, 2022 Monterey, California
Workshop members will be picked-up early afternoon by a private coach from San Francisco International Airport and transferred south to the delightful old town of Monterey. Monterey’s Spanish colonial past is still visible in the roughly two dozen mid 19th century adobes scattered among the modern structures of downtown. Signs of the city’s more recent heritage as a fishing and cannery town are also prominent and waiting for us to paint. You will have time to relax over a welcome drink and included dinner and Debra will begin the workshop by outlining her plans for the next few days.

DAY 2: Monday September 26, 2022 Monterey, California
After breakfast Debra will begin the painting program with her first painting demonstration. Then it will be your turn to paint as Debra moves among the group, helping each person with their work. Critique sessions will be held at the workshop hotel each evening.

DAY 3: Tuesday September 27, 2022 Monterey, California
Today we enjoy a day of painting in Pacific Grove and along the Monterey coast. Pacific Grove is known for its monarch butterfly grove, its many historic homes, some of which date back to the 19th century, and its long stretch of beautiful rocky coastline featuring several scenic overlooks. Debra will start with a demonstration and then assist workshop members individually.

DAY 4: Wednesday September 28, 2022 Monterey, California
Today we travel to the beautiful town of Carmel-by-the-sea, known for its fairytale cottages and galleries of its village-like center. Debra will find a perfect location for our day of painting and instruction from Debra.

DAY 5: Thursday September 29, 2022 Monterey, California
Our last full day of painting. We will travel back to the beautiful town of Carmel and Debra will demonstrate and then move from person to person offering helpful advice. There will be a critique session before the group comes together for farewell drinks and included dinner to celebrate the success of our time in Monterey.

DAY 6: Friday September 30, 2022 Departure
After breakfast workshop members will join the workshop coach to travel north to San Francisco International airport to join afternoon flights. Continuing workshop members will fly to St George airport, Utah.
