PLEIN AIR PAINTING
9:00am - 12:00pm
Open to all levels of experience. Learn how to interpret the landscape in terms of paint, using light and color to create form. The aim of class is to teach you to think, see and express light and form. Color relationships, design/composition, simplifying and the benefits of painting outdoors will be discussed, as well as how to design and build a painting that carries an emotional impact. We will focus on values, shapes, edges and color as well as paint handling and materials. The instructor will offer a brief demonstration each day and advice on a one-on-one basis in the field.
NOTE: In the event of inclement weather students must bring with them several reference photographs of landscapes.
