Plein-Air Water Color: The Basics (ages 12-16)
Friday, June 15, 2018
Plein Air (French for outdoors) painting adapts techniques and presents different challenges than what you might see in a studio or classroom. Use the beautiful, natural features of Explore Park to get your creativity flowing onto your canvas. You will learn the basics of drawing and shading, color mixing, and design and watercolor techniques. Throughout the courses, students will create a color mixing chart and several completed paintings of different live nature scenes. Course is appropriate for painters of all experience levels. All materials will be provided. This program will meet at the Visitor Center and then relocate to the painting area. Pre-registration is required.
