This plein air workshop, taught by Marc Hanson, is for intermediate to advanced painters working in oils, pastels and acrylics. Marc works in all three mediums on location and in the studio, and is happy to instruct artists in any of the three.
Since we all come to painting with a lot of information and history of our own, it’s not possible for Marc to know each individual students’ experience and abilities. He’s designed his workshops so each student will benefit from the exercises he’s created. Each one help to strengthen your current abilities, and expose those skills that need strengthening.
Marc works with each individual student at their own level and spends a lot of time with each student at their easel giving individual instruction. He also demos everything that he asks you to do.
You’ll leave the workshop having spent the time studying the basic elements of painting… Drawing, Value, Color, Edges and Design… with one other element, possibly the most important one of all… Concept… being explored and discussed at length.
Marc’s exercises will focus on the importance of Value, Color, Design and Concept.
You may not go home with paintings to be framed, but you will go home with a portfolio full of valuable exercises that you can refer back to as you move forward in your own painting process.
All Marc asks is that you come with an inquisitive and open mind, and the Art Spirit within you.
This four-day workshop is runs March 23-26, 2017. It is open to all levels. The cost is $650. Sign up at http://www.whidbeyislandfas.com.
