The basics of color mixing, brushwork, and composition will be covered in the studio alongside the experience of painting plein-air in and around the midcoast region. The emphasis of this course will be on combining creative mark-making with techniques to help with accurate seeing. Plan to slow down and experience your environment through new eyes. Open to beginner and intermediate adult students. Experimentation and the joy of unexpected outcomes make this class playful and lively.
