“It was my pleasure to be a part of Celeste McCollough's pleine air workshop in Gainesville as my second experience under her instruction. I learned so much with her generous and gracious approach to teaching. Not only am I moving forward, but her relaxed manner and encouraging approach made this workshop delightful and one I will most definitely want to repeat in the future!” MP 2017

“I learned more about Plein Air painting in those three days than I have ever learned before!  The workshop was so well structured and well-thought-out that it fit my learning style perfectly.  I look forward to studying with you again. Your knowledge of the subject matter is exceptional.   Your critiques were very insightful and made learning easy.” MB 2016
