Class Description: 

This five day workshop will focus on painting on location (plein air) as a form of study and not as a performance art. Working on location started hundreds of years ago as a way of studying the mutable effects of weather and atmosphere and to help painters develop a closer, truer and more intimate relationship with nature. The practice is intended to heighten the artist's knowledge of nature and to elevate the artistic sensibility to it. We will discuss and examine not only "how" to create work outdoors, but also the all important "why". This conceptual aspect of painting is something that many artists pass by and it is the very essence of artistic intent. 

We will be working primarily outside and approaching our subjects with methods ranging from sketching (visual journaling) to simple color studies to more developed and finished works. 

This class is intended for experienced painters. All media are welcome, however the daily demos will be conducted in oil. I will also be doing short demos in charcoal and white chalk on gray paper. Since artists are expected to have experience, I don't supply a materials list, but I would recommend bringing the aforementioned charcoal pencils, white chalk and a pad of gray paper.
