Explore the world you see beyond four walls through the tradition of plein-air painting. Students will learn how to prepare canvas, panel, and paper, and to set up and mix oil paint on site. You will learn a variety of painting techniques and concepts to express what you observe in the landscape, including abstracting from what you see and working from memory. We will traverse the North Seattle College campus and adjacent Licton Springs, finding inspiration in the various sites. Anticipate some walking
and carrying materials in a bag or backpack. See Textbooks and Supplies for supply list.
