Since 1990, we've been offering fine art instruction through plein air and studio workshops in a variety of locations. Artists may choose an all-inclusive package in a Premium workshop retreat; or a workshop in which the participants are responsible for their own lodging and meals.


A special thanks to all of the extraordinary artists that I have had the good fortune to meet in the workshops over the years. It is a fantastic journey and I am grateful! - Marty Brens












Teresa Vito Oil/Acrylic/Pastel

Art In the Aspens Workshops

Teresa Vito 2019  


Plein Air Landscape  

Oil /Acrylic/Pastel
October 15-18 2019  Tuesday-Friday

Lodging Rusted Poppy, Pueblo, CO  non-inclusive


To ensure a room at the Rusted Poppy Inn please register early! We must release the rooms reserved at the Inn 60 days prior to the beginning of the workshop.


Teresa Vito is a knowledgeable  and enthusiastic teacher willing to share all she has learned over the years in a way that is easy to understand and apply to your work.

We will be painting in and around Pueblo, providing a variety of subject matter including urban buildings, Autumn leaves, water, arroyos and mountains.

Teresa will demonstrate and instruct in the fundamentals of painting which includes massing in the simple value shapes, measuring and drawing, design and composition, color and temperatures, brush strokes and edges.

Learn to be able to “see” and simplify, getting down the important information as quickly as possible because the light and shadows change so quickly when you are outdoors. We will be working on small canvases so you will feel free to experiment and learn new things.

Participating in a workshop is a sure fire way to jump your paintings to the next level. Not only do you get 4 days in a row in which all you are doing is painting and learning new techniques on the spot, there is a camaraderie with being around fellow artists sharing in the excitement having common interests . This generally leads to sharing of loads of great information, be it technical tips, where to get supplies and general musings on art and life.

Be prepared to paint two paintings a day and dress in layers, be prepared for weather changes and temperatures. This promises to be exciting, inspiring, and of course the best fulfilling exhaustion!
