Fridays, Oct 26-Nov 16, 12:30-3:30
Materials Not Included
Instructor: Lauren McKinley Renzetti
We will be learning many paint techniques that help create a landscape. Techniques we will try are scumble, graduated blend, stipple, spatter, drybrush, impasto paint with a palette knife, schlapitka and sgraffito. We will create a constructed landscape and then work from some images by artists. We plan to be exposed to art by the Group of Seven, the Impressionists and more current artists like Kim Dorland. Your own explorations and paintings from these inspirations are the goal. We will learn how to translate a small images on to a larger canvas along with how to create the perfect composition using a composite picture you create. Working from photographs of real places is expected in weeks 2-4.
