Beginner's Workshop - Oil Painting en plein air
Sugar House Park
Saturday, October 13, 2013
9:00 am - 3:00 pm (one-hour break for lunch)
All-day instruction for $50
Learn step-by-step painting in an outdoor landscape. Along with the demo and the exercises, you'll receive written information so you don't have to take notes. Imagine how fun it will be to feel the beauty of nature and to be able to take several small paintings home with you!
- Compose and block-in a landscape scene
- Simplify your subject
- Paint with four basic values (black, white, charcoal and light gray)
- Paint using full-color
- Block in local color masses
We limit the class to 8 students. Please call to schedule (801) 455-3551. The workshop fee of $50 must be paid in advance to reserve a spot in the class.
Sugar House Park, in Salt Lake City, Utah, is bordered by 1300 East on the west, by 2100 South on the north, by 1700 East on the east, and by I-80 on the south. There is a traffic light at the 1500 East entrance. Enter the park at the light, turn right and drive until the hill starts to drop down toward the pond. Look for me and my silver VW passat station wagon (just below the top of the hill).
There are several restaurants nearby so you can grab a bite to eat (or you can bring a sack lunch).
Click on the "Classes" tab (above) to view the plein-air painting supply list. Most of you already have oil painting supplies but check the supply list to be sure you have what you will need. For this particular workshop - you will need at least four small panels (5 x 7" or 6 x 8"). I have these available at the park for $1 each.
