Paint-Out with Zufar Bikbov

passed event - Carlisle, PA | February 15, 2020



"You are invited to participate in a Paint-Out Event with Zufar Bikbov and Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association! And our sponsor is MY ART RETREAT which organizes workshops with very well known artists!
Please, keep in mind - this is not a workshop, but a friendly paint-out event with Zufar and other artists. We are going to have a lot of fun painting together at the same location.


We will gather 9:00-9:30 at the defined location! Coffee and some pastry will be available to purchase.
9:30 am - 10:45 am Zufar will do a demo on the location. Yes, watch, ask questions, talk to peer artists, exchange ideas and inspire each other.
11:00 - 1:00 pm - Paint-out for all. Zufar will be painting with the group. Come and see him working. He will do rounds and will give advice and will critique your work as you wish.
Around 1 p.m. We'll break for lunch. If the weather is good, we may want to paint more after lunch.
What to consider: it is winter, so warm outfit and a thermos of hot tea or coffee are recommended. Toes are and hands warmer is a good idea, as well as taking extra dose of Vitamin C or Air-Born vitamins.
Rescheduling/cancellation: if the forecast shows bitterly cold weather, strong wind, snow or rain, we will reschedule the event to February 29th, Saturday. If you cannot attend on the rescheduled date, you will get money back with no questions.
What to bring: your usual plein air painting gear, couple of your favorite canvases, plenty of optimism and desire to paint! You can see and learn from others and Zufar, if this is one of your first paint-outs.
Let's paint together and have fun! GROUP WILL BE LIMITED TO 15 PARTICIPANTS ONLY! This event cost $25 to cover event expenses.

Your Instructor


Trained in art school in Russia in the Russian realism tradition, Zufar Bikbov chose the landscape as the way to express his feelings and share them with his audience - particularly through plein air painting. He says, "I paint nature, since it is an inexhaustible source of inspiration." In 2004, he sought new inspiration and expanded his practice from Russia to the New World. Winner of multiple plein air awards at national competitions, Zufar continues to avidly explore the American landscape and teach art live in art studios mainly on East Coast.

His works are widely present in private collections in the United States, from New England to California, in the UK, Spain, and of course in Russia.
Zufar has a number of followers of his art and considers teaching art a significant point of his artistic career.
