David Dunlop is here this week to teach the historic methods of plein air painting. He is taking his group to locations that were the favorites of the Hudson River painters like Cole and Church.

Today the class went to the top of Kaaterskill Falls. This is the former site of the Laurel House, a historic resort in the Catskills that operated from 1852 – 1967. The resort is no longer there, but the stunning vistas are! It is a great place to paint.
