Friday January 31st @ 6-8PM and Saturday February 1 @ 9:30AM – 3:30PM – Getting to the Essential – A Pathway to Abstraction through the Landscape

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.

Saturday February 29 @ 9:30AM – 3:30PM – Take it with you! Creating and Sustaining a Daily Art Practice

In this class, you will learn everything you need to know to begin (or rekindle!) a daily art-making practice. You’ll learn how to pack a portable drawing and watercolor kit, how to set up a workspace when you are traveling or when you don’t have a dedicated studio space, how to come up with projects, how to make time for your daily practice, and how to keep your practice going when life tries to get in the way. If you are looking for a creative boost, this class is for you!
