Welcome to my website, covering the plein air workshops I conduct.  Class size is limited, allowing for lots of personal assistance.  My focus is on the art of picture making, composition and design, applicable in any medium. Demonstrations are in watercolor, while students using acrylics are welcome.  At foreign locations, the emphasis remains the same, while sketchbook journaling is also encouraged.  Take a look at what is offered and sign up for my Painting Posts. 

Should you have any questions, simply touch the “Ask Tony” button.  

Come join the fun!   Tony van Hasselt, A.W.S.
