Painting en plein air

This class is open to beginners up through advanced students of painting. Outdoor painting demands decisiveness in execution, some drawing skills, and a sense of color. Mastery of even a single one of these components may yield fine results; but engaging all three aspects while painting can be intense and exhilarating. We will focus on one element at a time for the first few weeks after reopening. During each class there will be a short demonstration with questions and answers.

Instructor: Eberhard Froehlich

Restarting: July 2

Ongoing class – 8 weeks
