dewaardDuring this Three Day Plein Air Workshop, students will inevitably be chasing the light and seeing beyond what is there, always looking for more. No matter what we are faced with, it all comes down to design. Utilizing and building on what nature gives us but not being a slave to it. It is all about the design and interpretation as well as simplification, shapes, and Light and Shadow patterns. Individualized critique, at the student’s easel, will form the basis for instruction. Demonstrations, as a means toward clarification of a concept, will be performed as well. Students will work from the landscape en plein air. Students may work in the painting medium of their preference, be it oil, watercolor, pastel, or acrylic. A very modest, suggested supply list, will be presented upon registration.

“My personal objective during this workshop is to make sure that each and every student experiences advancement.” – Ken DeWaard, Instructor
