Day 1: Learn how light affects seeing, how to use perspective and colour and get ready for the outdoor sessions.
Day 2-4: meet at different locations to gain practical experience ‘en plein air’ . Students will learn how to play with the ever changing conditions. Plein air artists challenge themselves to complete a painting in each sitting. You may find however that painting in nature initiates a deeper awareness of place, where the process becomes more important than the outcome. Materials list will be sent upon registration
