Plein Air Painting Workshop with Jan Ketza

Come paint with me "En Plein Air!"


There is nothing like the experience of painting outdoors! Everything you experience gets transposed to the canvas in exciting spontaneous ways! The sun upon your skin, the breeze through your hair, the sounds of nature around you, and the energy of the Earth at your feet goes into your brushstrokes. 


I have been painting the Galena/Jo Daviess County area for many years and I know so many incredible places to paint. The landscape is abundant with compositions and there are so many wonderful places to paint with in a 20 mile radius of Galena. 


My workshops are 4 days long and each day we go to another site to paint. 

The hours are 10-4 daily. I will start the day with a painting demo that shows you the Plein Air technique I have developed. After this demo you will begin your painting and I will travel between all students giving guidence and direction. This workshop is instructional and you are to bring your supplies to paint. I will provide a PDF page for you to print of my personal paints and colors I bring along. In this workshop I will go over everything in detail. Bring many canvases along so you can choose the size you want for that day. My technique is vibrant and full of color! This Workshop will give you a great base and confidence to move forward painting outdoors. 


Each day we will spend time at the location and explore the site emerging ourselves in the Plein Air experience. 


The cost of the 4 day workshop is $200.00. 

A class size of 10.

Reservations with payment are required to book your spot.
