Workshop: Prep for Plein Air

Get ready to paint outdoors! In this workshop, we will start off by properly preparing a painting panel.

Then you will practice setting up what you may already have and get valuable tips for modifying your kit to be more efficient. If you don’t have a plein air kit of any kind, don’t worry! You will be able to use a studio easel! Once set up, you will tone your panel and block in a simple painting. There! You’re ready to paint en plein air!

Workshop: Notan and Composition

More than just “black and white” or “light and dark” the concept of “notan” leads us to look more closely at how we structure a painting or drawing. In this one-day workshop you will learn just what “notan” is and develop a feel for what makes a strong composition. Through several hands-on exercises you will learn to sense the dynamics of your composition and thereby gain control of that important foundation of your painting.
