To be in the moment as much as humanly possible is what we so often strive to do. Painting plein air is a good way to get there. Join California artist Randall Sexton for a fun week of “choice moments” while painting the various scenes close to La Casa. Randall Sexton, Carmel Mission, oil

“Dear Bob Monica and Staff,
My 4th year of enjoying the total Casa Experience – Your graciousness is genuine. I feel welcome & more “at home” each year with the best home cooked Mexican food and caring encouraging art experience – Many Thanks!
Hoping to see you all for many years to come. -Joanne Ravgiala

We will be painting on location at inspirational places. We will visit the award winning Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens where we will have the bottom of their Hacienda Restaurant to use as a temporary studio, after sketching in the morning they will prepare us a wonderful lunch and then more art play in the afternoon, (perhaps after a quick siesta on one of their lounge chairs overlooking the mountains). We will also spend a day at the nearby charming mountain town of El Tuito, painting at the Zocalo with the cobblestone streets and charming buildings surrounding it, with a simple demo in the morning, and another great lunch in the courtyard garden at Marios Patio, a great hacienda style restaurant right on the square, then painting in the afternoon. Another day we will take a boat trip to explore the gorgeous coastline, (witnessing a wonderful display of atmospheric perspective) and arrive at a wonderful beach for picnic and sketching, (swimming or snorkeling anyone?). At each location Randall will share his wisdom, insights and mastery to help you capture expressive brushwork while painting on location. You will also have valuable one on one time with the instructor to help you with your grasp of the materials, techniques and concepts.
