Bernie Dellario

3-Day Plein Air Workshop
Aug 19, 2024

Our instructor Bernard Dellario uses it in a painterly, intuitive way, Bernie describes his style as “abstract with a foothold in reality.”

Melissa and Marita bring these special opportunities to artists in neighboring communities and to invite people from out-of-town to enjoy the richness of our farmland, river views, small-town charm, and all this area has to offer.
