Plein Air Painting in Barrington - an all Media, One-Day Workshop

Start Slowly, See Remarkably, Paint Joyfully

In other words, taking the time to see the scene in a remarkable way, mixed with our body of knowledge and a dash of imagination (also unique to all) is the way I like to start Plein Air painting. For when we do, it's our imagination that takes that scene so remarkably seen that it forces the artist in us to see it remarkably, feel it joyfully, and paint it beautifully.

In concert with Barrington’s Third Plein Air painting festival, this workshop will be offered to all artists who want to hone their skills just prior to the Event’s launch day of Monday, October 7th. You do not need to be a participant in the Plein Air Event to join this workshop. It’s simply offered to anyone and all who want to improve their seeing and painting skills.

We will meet at Barrington’s Citizen Park on Sunday October 6th 2019 from 9:00am-4:00pm. Class will include basic artistic concepts pertaining to your medium of choice. Also covered will be discussions on Design, Composition, Values and Simplification. Emphasis will be on discovery of intent, (why paint this scene in the first place) value study of lights, mid-tone and darks to tell the best story, growing skill and confidence building, specific techniques will be addressed to help each students make positive decisions and work through to complete paintings, all with much fun and no fear.

High School Students, There’s a no cost special offer to those High School students who major in Art. Use code 6BNEGXC on check out to receive a 100% discount on this class. Limited to the first 10 High School Students.

If rain is forecasted, we’ll gather in under one of the covered shelters.

Bring your supplies and prepare to learn and paint.

The first hour will be discussion and demos, generally in oil and or watercolor. Along with maybe a folding chair, sun hat and a light jacket, bring your creative, fun spirit for adventure. Also bring whatever supplies you normally use to make art. Bring some extra canvas, and paper too, you'll make a lot of art, sketches and little studies. Hour 2-6 will be painting and individual instructions, followed by group feedback and lessons learned. Class ends around 4:00 pm.

If this class sounds like a good fit for you, I’d love it if you could join us. As in all workshops, space is limited.
