PLEIN AIR TRICKS AND TECHNIQUES
Time: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm (both days)
Location: Palette Studio (Second Floor) – Arts Center
Take your paints outside with North Carolina watercolorist and plein air painter Zan Thompson during a 2-day workshop in the beautiful Foothills of North Carolina. This workshop will consist of a brief lecture, group discussions, outdoor painting demonstrations, and student painting opportunities. April is a wonderful time to be in the foothills with lovely weather and spring colors beginning to emerge. Attendees will learn exercises that will help to improve their fundamentals of drawing, composition, values (light/shadow), and color to create stronger outdoor paintings. This class will be beneficial to all levels of artists. The class will be a small group learning experience which will allow Zan to personally help each artist regardless of their skill level. You may need help finding a scene to paint, setting up equipment, drawing, composing, mixing colors, creating softer edges, finding color harmony, or painting faster outside. Zan will try to help each student with their individual needs.
Class will primarily be held outside, dress accordingly and come prepared.
Price: $200.00 for 14 hours of instruction over two days
Instructor: Zan Thompson
