"See & Paint Your Subject in Oil and Acrylics"

Mitch Baird

Learning to "See & Paint Your Subject in Oil and Acrylics"

June 9  - June 11, 2017,  Friday through Sunday  - $395

 What does the act of ‘seeing’ mean for an artist?

It is a crucial skill and in this workshop we will explore the specifics of learning to ‘see’ the subject, interpreting the visual elements, and putting it all onto canvas. We will cover ‘seeing’ the light, form, atmosphere and space of a scene. The fundamentals of painting–composition, drawing, value, color, and edges will also be stressed.

Mitch will be doing plenty of demos in oils covering these concepts.
We will work in the studio from photos, field sketches, or still life subjects set up in class.

Weather permitting, we may also work outside near the OSA, gathering material through field sketches or painting en plein air. Individual attention for all students will be a high priority, as well as laughs and a lot of enthusiasm!
