"Studio Painting: Beyond the Basics"
June 2-4, 2023
 

Join us for a 3-day oil painting workshop with American Impressionist Artist, James Richards. His work is best known for its expressive and often experimental brushwork, spontaneity, sensitive color and mystery. Day 1 James will share his concepts, ideas and techniques for creating loose, impressionistic paintings. In addition, you’ll also be working on creating color harmony while using a limited palette. Days 2 and 3 will be a combination of studio/En Plein Air (weather permitting) demonstrations by James and student painting. You’ll have the opportunity to apply and sharpen the concepts and techniques from the previous day’s study while James circulates and works with students individually. You will be encouraged to paint multiple pieces, with a focus on smaller studies.
