In this class participants work in nature, in the medium of their choice, with the goal of achieving clear, legible paintings. When painting outdoors, en plein air, there is such a bewildering welter of “stuff” to paint that we often don’t know where to begin. Yet somehow, we have to start with a solid vision for our painting. The first day begins with a demonstration outlining the fundamental concepts all artists must use in order to achieve a successful landscape.

Using oil paint, instructor Michael Gogal will display how to use value to generate luminosity, composition to achieve unity, and color and edges to create a sense of space. All levels are welcome, and students are encouraged to proceed at their own pace throughout this six-week course. Please bring pencils and paper (or your own paints) the first day, and be ready to paint or draw and ask questions.

Since we anticipate students of different levels, the instructor will discuss materials on an individual basis.

Please note this series must be purchased as a whole, in advance. Individual sessions are not available for purchase. This series takes place on six Sundays: May 17 – Jun. 21.
