Welcome to this website, covering my plein air workshops.  Class size is limited to allow for personal assistance where needed.  The focus is on the art of picture making, composition and design, applicable in any medium. Demonstrations are in watercolor, while participants 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 if you have any questions, simply touch the
“Ask Tony” button.  

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