NEW! 4710. Getting to the Essential - A Pathway To Abstraction Through Landscape - Workshop

Learn how to distill what we see to its essential elements and
translate this experience with paint. Using the landscape as
our muse, we’ll learn how to create dynamic compositions,
how to find (and lose!) edges and refine our sense of color.
We’ll work from reference photos to learn how to use
photography as a jumping off point to make a painting rather
than making a copy of a photo. The instructor will project
photos for the whole class to work from together. You’ll
develop skills that you can apply to plein-air and studio
painting. For effective learning, it is required that students
have previous drawing and painting experience. Students
need to bring their own oil painting supplies and panels
or canvases on which to paint. A supply list will be sent to
students beforehand.
