Drawing & Painting Workshops
St. George, UT Workshops:
Roland Lee usually presents several workshops from his St. George each year. Located just 45 minutes from Zion National Park, and only minutes from Snow Canyon, St. George provides the ideal setting for plein air instruction and vacation-style scenic watercolor workshops. Regardless of the subject matter, each workshop usually includes both studio and outdoor sketching and painting in various locations, coupled with in-studio powerpoint presentations and live demonstrations. If you want to jump-start your art, and re-charge your artistic batteries, this is the place to do it.
With over 35 years experience, Roland Lee is one of today’s most successful watercolorists and sought-after art workshop instructors. As a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Roland has conducted workshops throughout America, helping hundreds of artists bring their art to a higher level. He has written articles for “The Artists’ magazine”, “Plein Air Today,” Etched Magazine” and “The Drawing Board” magazine, and has produced a popular series of instructional videos.
For those who need specific help and individualized instruction, Roland Lee offers either private consultation/lessons or Master Classes. These are held in his own private studio and include a lot of one-on-one time focusing on specific needs. Roland only takes 4 or 5 Students in his Master Classes, and they must have already taken one of his workshops or classes to be eligible. Classes are held on one Friday and one Saturday each month.

All Roland’s workshops are intended for painters with some previous watercolor experience and a knowledge of basic watercolor painting techniques. You don’t have to be a pro, but we do want you to feel comfortable. No specific paints or materials are required. Just bring what you like to use. A suggested materials list can be found below.
What to expect:
Typical workshops consist of teacher demonstrations, powerpoint presentations, and actual student painting time under Roland’s supervision. Classes will be mostly in the studio, with some short outdoor sketching trips to learn to see in nature. At least two plein air outdoor painting workshops are offered each year in southern Utah’s spectacular National Park country.
Classes generally meet from 9am to 4pm each day with a 1-hour lunch break (on your own).
Tuition and Cancellations:
The Class fee is due at reservation. You will receive a full refund if cancellation notice is given 30-days prior to class time. No refunds for cancellations will be given after that time.
In response to requests from his many workshop participants, Roland Lee has now released a series of new step-by-step instructional videos for online download. Each video is shot with multiple cameras, and uses both dialog and on-screen text to demonstrate in real time his watercolor techniques. Each demo features a complete painting starting with the planning and thumbnail studies to the finished matted painting.
