  • Kathleen Jacobs - Plein Air Painting on the Coast of Maryland


    September 15 - 17, 2017

    Medium:  Gouache, Oil, Acrylic, Pencil & Pen
    Level:  Intermediate
    Tuition:  $575 | Lab Fee: $25

    Paint and draw the inspiring land and waterscapes of Snow Hill, Maryland and embrace the exciting challenge of painting and drawing outdoors. Simple hikes will take class members to view exciting river banks, coastal marshes and vistas. Initially, there will be an emphasis on drawing the form and structure of the landscape, seeking a certain grace and order from nature within a small format space. There will be an added emphasis on finding visual unity when composing a small pencil sketch that will eventually become a painting. Working small, participants will work quickly to create their paintings allowing the process of drawing from life to work with a spirit of simplicity and place. Enjoy  a fresh engagement with intuition, freedom, and interaction with the lovely sounds, sites and colors of September in Snow Hill. Students of all levels are welcome, open to all painters using any medium to create a series of small paintings.
