We had a great advantage because a bridge sheltered most of my students while they painted.
Although some of us did decide to fight the elements with umbrellas.
The best brand for us was a Shadebuddy - http://www.judsonsart.com/pleinair/pc/ShadeBuddy-Umbrella-Set-with-Shoulder-Bag-p916.htm - and also a fishing umbrella.
Here are some photos from the workshop.
