Plein Air Landscape Painting
Copyright © Stephan Orsak

This is a flexible offering with a lecture, plus option of one or both classes.

Outdoor painting offers an amazing experience of light, color and atmosphere, but doesn’t spare us at all in problems and challenges. Favoring intermediate through advanced levels, we will dive straight into issues and solutions including ways of working under rapidly changing light conditions, advanced composition, transposition and illusions of color and value, white balance and atmospheric tonalities. The weekend intensive class will favor longer midday light compositions while the weekly class will go after the challenges of beautiful but rapidly changing early evening light. All media welcome.

Lecture: TUESDAY, June 21, 7:00-9:00 PM, $10
Weekend Intensive (midday light): SAT./SUN., June 25 & 26, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM, $70
Weekly Class (evening light): (6)THURSDAYS, June 23 - July 28, 6:00 - 8:30 PM, $120
Please pre-register by the lecture date, June 21st, for any or all of the above.
