Plein Air Landscape Painting Workshop

2-Day Workshop: Saturday & Sunday, March 21st & 22nd, 12pm-5pm

The natural world is full of awe inspiring environments, and there are few experiences more exciting than capturing a sense of these places through paint. In this two day workshop with Jordan K. Walker we will explore the basic principles of landscape painting, including composition, value, depth, and color. We will paint directly from life at Mount Pisgah Arboretum, and learn to record some of the subtleties of nature while altering what we see to create compelling images. This class will also touch on essential techniques of oil painting, such as paint application, edge control, and color mixing. All levels of experience are welcome. Meet at the Education Building (a.k.a. Visitor Center). Members $50, non-members $60. Pre-registration required. Click here for a materials list.
