Landscape Workshop Series
The landscape has been a favorite theme of artists for centuries, but it's a complicated subject to master. This fall, we break it down step by step, and discover drawing and painting techniques to achieve realistic views of Nature. A series of multi-media workshops will approach the great outdoors by focusing on four distinct areas:
DRAWING TREES: Saturday, September 19 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Explore the form and texture of trees using graphite pencils. We will learn to compose the page to best describe the tree's personality, and use our pencils to the fullest to translate the sunlight's effects on leaves and bark.
PAINTING TREES: Saturday, October 17 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Use a brush to investigate trunks, branches, roots and leaves, and how they all come together. We will cover color mixing methods that go beyond plain green and brown, and learn to depict different types of trees through the four seasons of the year.
NATURAL ELEMENTS: Saturday, November 14 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Unearth the best tips and tricks for drawing and painting a wide range of subjects found in the landscape, including the sky, rocks, grass, sand, and more. We will emphasize shape and texture to render realistic scenes of these important landscape elements.
PAINTING WATER: Saturday, December 5 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Discover ways to capture the many moods of water - from serene ponds to sparkling waterfalls to tossing waves. We will use traditional water-based media but also incorporate unexpected household items such as masking tape and white glue.
These workshops are offered in person at 88 Hatch Street, Studio 210, New Bedford.
Tuition is $100 per workshop, which includes all necessary art materials.
