This online course features the following types of interaction:
- Live meetings
- Live critiques
Starting with small quick studies and limited color palettes students will build up to longer one-day paintings. Students will be helped in setting up to paint, and specific projects related to composition, color and other formal issues will be assigned. An important component will be learning how to sketch and note-take on site so as to hone observational skills in order to paint away from the site. Painting at night, from a window or in your neighborhood, is encouraged. This is an intensive, week-long workshop. Daily group critiques are an important component as well as one-on-one instruction and demonstrations. The workshop will be conducted primarily in oil, however students are welcome to work in acrylic or gouache.
