Date: July 16-19, 2020
Time: 9:00 AM-4:30 PM
Medium: Oils, pastels or acrylics
Based on Lois Griffel’s two books Painting the Impressionist Landscape and Painting Impressionist Color, this workshop focuses on how to capture color and light in your paintings by gaining insight into the foundations of Impressionism.
Lois will teach you how to interpret nature with rich and beautiful color, combining Impressionist theory with the essential principles of successful paintings.
The morning sessions will be held outdoors with afternoons in the studio. This will allow time for artists to finish paintings and follow up on lessons from the morning. Each class will build on the lessons of the previous days.
This workshop is open to artists of all levels, using any opaque medium such as oils, water based oils, or pastels. Acrylics are only recommended to artists who have experience using them outdoors.
