Finding An Intimate View En Plein Air: A 2-day Painting Workshop With Linda Packard (10:00 am - 4:00 pm)

Anyone who has tried painting outdoors has experienced the difficulty of finding a compelling composition. We tend to be overwhelmed and overstimulated. We look at the vistas and include too much information. This workshop with artist Linda Packard will show you new ways to find the most compelling elements and work them into an intimate composition. Once there, the emphasis will be on simplifying the chosen view to its essence using color, shape, line, and letting go of recording details. Come prepared to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and let go of perfection.  This workshop is for painters with some experience with his or her chosen medium. However, plein air experience is not a prerequisite.  All mediums are welcome. Each day will be structured differently but will include a quick demo and time at the end for final thoughts and gentle critique. Participants should bring all necessary materials for one's chosen medium, plus a sketch pad or book, sketching tools (pencil, pen, charcoal, graphic sticks, etc), plein air easel, sun hat and sunscreen.   The cost for the 2-day workshop scheduled on Thursday & Friday, August 21 & 22, is $225 for Woodlawn members/$235 for non-members and includes lunch for both days.  As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling Woodlawn at 667-8671.  The class will be held rain or shine.
