Plein Air Sketching in Lil’ Rhody: Fresh, Fleeting & Fearless

Thursday June 23rd

What is our relationship to the natural world? In a one-day intensive, you will be challenged to create multiple fresh studies outdoors in your choice of media inspired by the fleeting light and evolving color of the beautiful vistas of our own Lil’ Rhody.  An organized approach to a limited palette and strong compositional preliminary sketches will support image making.  Our painting and drawing process will organically integrate expressive light and color.      All levels of experience and media welcome.   Locations: June 23rd: South County & August 6th: Industrial Waterfront: Providence ($150 per workshop)


2 Day Intensive:

Plein Air Painting on the Outer Cape  (SOLD OUT)                                               

Monday August 1st and Tuesday August 2nd 8-12noon & 2-6pm                        

Summer is a beautiful time to paint the inspiring landscape of Truro, Wellfleet and Provincetown. Simple meditative hikes will take us to tidal marshes, ocean beaches and the Provinceland dunes to visually explore the landscape at various times of day. Initial emphasis will be put on drawing the inner structure of the landscape, its compositional dynamics as well as the clean, successful use of color. Accumulating sketches and visual data will allow us to build images from the ground up, respecting the anatomy of the painting and the varied topography of surface. Layering and process will create subtleties that imbue the work with a spirit of place.                                                                

Students of all levels are welcome in any media. Register early. Space is limited. (Fee: $400)
