WHO SHOULD ATTEND A PLEIN AIR BOOTCAMP?

This studio workshop class will help artists new to outdoor painting gain the basic foundation needed to paint from nature. This is an indoor class designed to prepare students for painting outdoors.

Many artists want to paint landscapes en plein air but are overwhelmed by the preparation, intimidated by logistical challenges, building a portable art kit, as well as the complexity of depicting changing natural light.

 TOPICS COVERED


Painting outdoors "en plein air" can be particularly challenging given the quickly changing light and weather. This workshop is designed to give artists outdoor painting basics needed to tackle outdoor art making. We will also cover what to include as well as what to omit from the artist's travel pack. Each artist will receive personal instruction during the course.

 WHAT TO EXPECT


The instructor demonstrates how to approach the challenge of painting outside, the process of alla prima (direct) painting en plein air, and provides personalized help to each artist. Artists in this course will learn a basic approach to direct painting from nature, preparing to paint outdoors, and hone their painting skills. • Individual Assignment tailored to fit your personal interests give direction and support your development.
