Explore drawing & painting in an urban environment. In this one week class, students will discover the quality of natural light and how it changes over time, explore how color defines forms, learn how to represent natural colors, and experiment with brush strokes and create textures. The morning session will involve drawing, watercolor and acrylic painting projects - during the afternoon we will take a walk outdoors and try our hand at plein-air painting. Instruction in color mixing, brush stroke, luminosity, shadow, and perspective will be given. The instructor will offer suggestions to each person individually during the session, then near the end of class time, the group will meet together to share their work and the day’s painting experience.
