Workshop Description:

These four-day landscape oil-painting workshops are dedicated to helping the artist make more informed decisions with their outdoor paintings. Combining indoor lectures, painting, and demonstrations, the artist will gain a greater understanding of the in-depth decision-making process to further support and guide their work.


(Formerly “Advanced Workshop”)
Max participants: 4-6
Cost: $2500 (50% due at registration)
Location: Victor, ID

Painting is a balance between knowledge and enthusiasm in preparation for the artist's work. The 5-person "Thinking Artistically" workshops are focused on the study, decision-making process, and continued growth of the artist. Participants will gain tools to inform their artistic thinking while also challenging themselves to think more divergently on the subject at hand. Combined indoor lecture with painting exercises help emphasize the concepts covered.



Scott’s workshops are located in Victor, Idaho, about 20 miles from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Scott’s studio is located on 5 acres and allows options for both indoor and outdoor painting. Teton Valley (where Victor is located) is surrounded by mountains, abundant with landscape inspiration, and in close proximity (1-2 hours) to both Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Non-painters have often joined their spouses, significant others, or mother/father and spent time hiking, biking, fishing, or exploring the National Forests or the National Parks in the area.

Participants fly into Jackson Hole, Wyoming (JAC) or Idaho Falls, Idaho (IDA). Both airports are about a one-hour drive away (give or take) from Scott’s studio. Public transportation is not available into and around the area so participants must rent a car if flying. Salt Lake City is the closest international airport— the drive from here is about 4.5 hours. 



Pricing for workshops does not include accommodations and food. A variety of accommodations are offered in the area— everything from free camping in the National Forest to luxury condos for rent. When workshop participants register, a more formal list of the specific options in the area is emailed.


Artists pick up their lunches from the local grocery store or markets in town to bring with them each day. We do have a refrigerator onsite to keep things cold. We have a number of restaurants in town and a dining guide for the area is emailed to participants as well.



Each day begins around 9 am and we wrap up between 4 - 5 pm. Maps of the area are provided for individual painting before or after each day’s work.  


Each small-group workshop is tailored to its participants and therefore no two workshops run with the exact same format. Scott makes his decisions depending on the group and the weather but, as an estimate, about half of the workshop is spent painting. There may be some indoor painting “exercises” but it is all intentional in helping the artist understand more once she gets outdoors. Scott's goal is to help artists be able to answer their own questions and continue their growth beyond the workshop.


Maps of outdoor painting locations are provided so participants have places to go to apply their knowledge either before or after class.



Artists of all skill levels are welcome to attend. The only requirement requested is that you have experience working with oil paints and a strong desire to dedicate yourself to learning.


A supply list is sent to participants as we near the workshop start date. These supplies are only recommendations and artists are encouraged to bring supplies of their choosing.
