9th Annual Plein Air Workshops

Interpreting the Landscape

Days & Times:
Wednesday - 10am - 4pm
Thursday - 10am - 4pm
Level:
All Levels Welcome
Location:
TBD
Instructor:

This workshop is for all skill levels from – beginner to advance. This class will discuss technique and various approaches to the application of the paint and there will be demonstrations each day. Students will also have the opportunity to paint while receiving individual suggestions and instruction based on their ability and level of experience. Painting is a way of interpreting the beauty that surrounds us. Good painters are able to capture the essence of that beauty in their paintings. First, students must learn the basics and become proficient in the processes of painting. The goal of this workshop will be to learn to develop the necessary skills to create better paintings and to nurture each student’s unique approach; to help them to learn new ways of working while they develop their own personal interpretation of the landscape.

Afraid of Color and Texture?

Days & Times:
Sunday - 10am - 5pm
Level:
All Levels Welcome
Location:
Guanabanas (960 N Hwy A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477)
Instructor:

Both of these elements are paramount in oil painting, so dive in with Erin as she demonstrates how to see color in the landscape in new and different ways. No theories or charts, just exercising the power of acute vision coupled with knowledge of some of history’s great painters, especially Monet.

Color is one thing, but if the surface ends up flat because of being too afraid to throw some paint down, watch as Erin blocks in her entire canvas with oil washes and her lavender medium* before ‘icing the cake’ with a palette knife. One full day of dynamic demos, painting and pushing the envelope will jump-start a new path toward more solid structure and an exciting canvas texture.
