    Plein Air Painting Workshop in Sedona, Arizona, This November with Michael Chesley Johnson AIS PSA MPAC
    As many of you know, I teach plein air painting workshops in Sedona, Arizona, from October through April. HOWEVER, this will soon end.

    Except for one upcoming workshop in November, I will not be teaching there in the Fall 2017/Winter 2018 season. If you would like to experience the beauty of Sedona, make sure you sign up for that one last workshop now! Dates are November 14-17, 2017. This is an ideal time of year for Sedona, as the weather is bright and sunny and the leaves are changing for fall. It's my favorite time of year! If you're interested, please let me know at or visit and go to the section about All-Level Group Plein Air Painting Workshops.
