Plein Air Painting in Oil: Outside and In   NEW!

Experience the exciting practice of painting what’s in front of you, outside or in, in the moment, real time, and in oils without the harmful solvents. Capturing moments of light, simplifying relevant shapes and color, and working quickly without stress are good practices. Inside (perhaps weather-depending), where light and subject matter may be somewhat controlled, the idea is the same: to focus on quick observation of light in composition. A $5 supply fee is paid to the instructor at the first class for other supplies provided. Required supplies for this program: • Class Supply List: • Hardcover, spiral-bound sketchbook preferred.
