Monday - Friday
August 19 - 23
9am - 12pm
Working outdoors, students will investigate form, line and color to experience and record what our natural surroundings present to us. In this class students will hone their observational skills, work intuitively, and learn to see and create simplified compositions from the graceful shapes and forms that exist in the beautiful landscape. Starting with thumbnail sketches, students will use these studies to help make small format paintings, no larger than 10” x 10,” painted in one sitting. The late summer colors of the national seashore will be discussed in order to mix and translate the experience one sees and feels while on Cape Cod. An emphasis will be placed on creating a simplified sense of space, structure, and a personal interpretation – all without over-analysis.
Skill Level - Beginner to Intermediate.
