Plein Air Painting the Landscape in Oils • In-Person Workshop
Stepping outside and painting the landscape can be exhilarating, but it can also feel overwhelming! In this plein air workshop, I will share the powerful principles you need to break down a scene into manageable chunks, establish your center of interest or "focal point" and create a dynamic, engaging composition.
Note: Right before this workshop, I will teach a 3-day still life workshop at the same location (see above). Sign up for one or both!

Painting the Portrait in the Landscape • Pre-Recorded Workshop
A great supplement to the Online Video Course.

Capturing the Glowing Effect • Pre-Recorded Workshop
In this 3.5–hour workshop with Sentient Academy, I'll help you simplify a backlit figurative scene into essential elements that can be captured quickly. As I paint a model backlit by the sun, I will demonstrate how to mix values, temperatures, and colors to harness the effects of sunlight.
"Some workshops leave you with a happy feeling for days afterwards and this is the case with our recent 3 day Painting the Portrait in Oil with Adam Clague! Adam is not only a great painter but wonderful teacher and super nice person. It was a great 3 days with lots of learning and painting! —Jeanie S., Workshop host
"I love how Adam teaches in a calm, peaceful and logical manner. I personally have had my greatest growth in skill by his instruction."
— Desiree Y.
"I attended some of Adam's workshops, and immediately afterward, I started selling a whole lot more paintings. The difference was like night and day."
"Taking one of Adam's workshops was not only an art learning experience but a relaxed and enjoyable one. His demos were very informative, a true reflection of his talent and his command of the oil medium."
— John U.
"Adam is a truly gifted artist, as confirmed by the many top awards he has received. He is a compassionate instructor, who openly shares his wealth of knowledge with his students. His observations and guidance are presented in understandable language with great empathy." —Teddy J.
