Abstracting the Landscape - Watercolor & Acrylic painters welcome!!

When painting the landscape, either from photos or plein air, what is our aim? We can take the point of view of showing something as accurately as possible, or we can paint how a view feels to us personally. This workshop will focus on the latter. Last year, while painting in France, I discovered just how much fun and freeing it is to paint how a landscape feels. This invariably leads to a more abstract viewpoint, but working from the standpoint of an emotional response, a painting can be expressed in many ways, from exaggerated color, or somewhat abstract, to completely non-objective. It all starts with an idea. Join me in this exploration. 

Because we’ll be in Oregon in February, we will be working mostly from photos or our imagination, however, weather permitting, we may get outside to work. For more information or to reserve your spot, contact or call 503-998-5833.

Tuition $325 for three full days.

Join me in my studio for…….

AN AMAZING SUMMER ART CAMP FOR YOUTH with Carrie Moore at Carrie Moore Studios.

I’ve been teaching adult and youth workshops in my studio for over 15 years.  Most recently, having moved to a new home and studio in the rolling hills for Oregon City, the space is large, and the project work we create with kids is unique, sometimes huge, fun, and exciting.

We will be working both in and out of doors, but mostly in the upstairs studio.

We will create in:


Take home projects will be many, and ALL the supplies are included in the fees.

I focus on teaching the basic elements of design.  We’ll sketch, do line drawings and so much more.  We’ll learn the basics of color theory, and explore the Principles of Design and how they are part of everything we see in our world around us!  We’ll play games, get to know new friends, make chalky messes, explore new and exciting ideas, and play while we learn.

Ages 8-14.  $200/per child
