Title: Painting the "Plein air" Landscape -2 Day Workshop
Instructor: Bruce Katz
Dates: October 4 and 5
Day & Time: Saturday and Sunday, 9:30am – 4:00pm
Description:Beginning and intermediate painters who want to learn to paint “en plein air” - and who want to improve their painting, too - learn the process of creating successful paintings outdoors using oil paint, water-soluble oils or acrylics. Bruce Katz works with and guides individual painters in a hands-on, step-by-step fashion from start to finish. Bruce focuses on aspects of the process from composition, drawing, color, value to paint handling. The workshop aims for painters to gain the confidence and knowledge to continue to develop as plein air painters, as well as finish at least one plein air painting over the weekend.
The class meets at the Frank Bette Center on the first morning then moves to locations (TBD) around Alameda during the weekend. Bruce begins both mornings with a painting demonstration to get the class started then participants set up and paint their own plein air subjects.
Fees: $160 Members; $180.00 Non-members
