Are you ready to get outside and paint this summer?

Get close to Mother Nature and soak up the fresh air and sunshine while learning to paint en plein air in lovely Colorado parks!


This intro class offers 6 weeks of precious in person community time, teacher support, new lessons with specific themes every week, and of course the world as your reference!


We’ll meet every Wednesday evening from 5:30-8:30 pm starting on June 16th. Every class will be a deep dive into the techniques of painting an essential landscape element.


We’ll learn to paint trees, lakes, grass, sky, and even distant mountains. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to paint all the luscious, rigid, and silky textures our world has to offer. 


We’ll have exact pins for address and written directions available before class, so you can park and walk straight up to our boundless classroom for the day.

Social distancing while painting will be recommended and we’ll do our best to disinfect and stay covid safe. Masks are recommended during lessons, but not required when sitting and painting.

FAQ's about our Intro to Landscape Class

What if I'm going to miss a class?

No problem, we've got you covered. We record every class and post them inside the private member's area within 24 hours of class.

What will the classes be like? 

We always start with a get-to-know-you question to build community.

Then Shannon will demo the lesson for the night. Then students start working on their assignment and have individual help when needed. 

What will we paint on and with?

This class includes acrylic paint, water for refreshing dirty paint water, but you will be required to bring your own easel, canvas, brushes, palette, water bucket, towel, plus any other supplies (chair, umbrella for shade) to help you enjoy your class. We’ll follow up with recommended materials with class registration.

Who will be in my class?

Your class will be adults who are looking to relax, be creative, and express themselves. On special occasions, we let mature teens into our classes as well. 

What if I have absolutely no experience? 

No experience is great! This course is specifically designed for beginners to learn all the foundations and basic techniques of landscape painting!

Where will class be?

Exact locations will be announced in our visual calendar by June 1st. With outside elements comes unpredictability. If weather permits we’ll host class as scheduled, but if we need to reschedule, class will be moved to a future date.  We’ll do our best to find spots close to public restrooms but we recommend preparing for no easy access. 

How much individual instruction will I get? 

After teaching the lesson, Shannon will be available for guidance and questions so that you can get individual instruction whenever you need it. This allows for you to get into the flow and not be bothered OR get any help you need just depending on your mood for the evening!

We'll teach you to paint clouds right now!

Learning to paint is EASY when someone teaches you the tricks.

"Shannon provides enough new techniques each class to give you something new to work on and to be able to complete each assignment but not so much that it’s overwhelming. The other students are also encouraging and helpful. It feels like a community. I’d definitely recommend MBodied to anyone interested in learning more about art."

"MBodied is a great art studio for beginner and advanced artists alike! I had never painted a day in my life before, and since joining MBodied, I've learned so many new skills! I've also been amazed to see what the other men/women in class create. The studio is very warm, welcoming and judgement free."
