Instructor: Rob DuToit
July 30 - August 3
Monday - Friday
9am - 12pm
As a variation on the traditional landscape class, we will confront the still life and figure outside. One or two classes will focus on just landscape, while the others will involve a subject, with the environment acting more as a backdrop or context. This offers a more particular focus within the often overwhelming chaos of being outside. Students may use oils, acrylics, or pastel. Emphasis will be placed on spontaneous and free exploration of color and energy, rather than finished works of art. Each day we will look at examples of great pictures that relate to our subject and focus on particular aspects of painting such as color, tonality and composition. This class is open to all levels, especially beginners. Individual instruction will meet each student’s level of experiences.
Rob DuToit began painting with oils and drawing with ink at the age of 10. He received a BFA from the University of New Hampshire and a MFA from Parsons School of Design in New York City, continuing his studies in France and Italy. He has had numerous solo and group shows in Boston, New York, and the Outer Cape. Recent work consists of elemental landscapes and spontaneous ink drawings from imagination. He lives in Truro with his wife and son and shows his work at Berta Walker Gallery in Provincetown and Wellfleet.
