One Day Plein Air Workshop In Union, SC with Todd Baxter

If you’ve wanted to give plein air painting a try or have limited experience, this is the workshop for you. Painting in the great outdoors is very different from using photos in the comfort of your home or studio. Be brave, step up and give it a try. Remember you will be among friends, but be careful you could become addicted to plein air painting. I will be working in oils, but you can work in the medium of your choice.

  About Todd Baxter

Todd Baxter has loved to draw the world around him as far back as he can remember, one of those enviable people who always knew what they wanted to be when they grew up.  His artist’s eye first guided Todd’s successful career as a graphic designer, begun after he graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1975.  For more than three decades, he created images that engaged audiences in the world of advertising. Then in June 2010, with the responsibilities of raising a family in the rearview mirror, he decided to adjust course to focus on his passion for fine art.

“I am extremely grateful to be able to pursue my passion, to have the opportunity to do what I love doing, every day.”

Todd is currently represented by the Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC, and Olive’s in Fort Mill, SC. He is a member of the Tega Cay Art League, the Charlotte Art League, the Catawba River Art Guild and the Charlotte Plein Air Painters.

Todd is also winner of Best in Show in the 2021 Colored Pencil Society of America International Exhibition.
