Come paint outdoors in the beautiful Lyme area! In this class we will focus on achieving the dynamic light effects and composition that landscape painting offers. Getting outside and enjoying some fresh air and social interactions are a bonus! We will work on producing spontaneous, expressive paintings that capture the essence of being outdoors. Topics covered will include composition, drawing, paint application, color, and materials. Individual instruction will be offered each day as well as demonstrations. Now is a better time than ever to enjoy an outdoor class!
Note: due to the somewhat remote areas that we sometimes paint in, this class is not suggested for anyone who may have trouble walking moderate distances. Bathroom access may not always be possible. Thank you for your understanding!
