During your week in Sun Valley, you can snow ski on our famous world class ski mountain, shop at our amazing stores, take a sleigh ride, dine at our famous restaurants, visit our nationally recognized art galleries, and then paint with me in the evening.

Join Sun Valley artist Lori McNee as she teaches students the fundamentals of still life painting. Students can either paint with oils or acrylics. She will teach students how to set up their own still life concentrating on lighting and positioning.
