Painting Outside – An Introduction and Continuing Practice Spring 2022 (Adults)

Thursday mornings 9:30-12:30 (6 classes)
In-person Class! May 12-June 16 – on the Zullo deck!
Instructor: Ron Krouk

An In-person Class! Starts May 12 – on the Zullo deck! It is so easy to take an outdoor photo these days but there is no comparison to the absorbing act of distilling intense and changing sensations into something only you can capture. This class takes place on Zullo’s balcony/rooftopdeck where we have the benefits of plein air light and subject matter along with the conveniences of a studio. It’s a good way to ease into an outdoor adventure. Our journey will stress process and growth and will cover options for equipment, selecting what to draw or paint, dealing with changing light and atmosphere and practicing the most important elements of drawing (how tall, how wide, at what angle) and painting (values, simplification, color). Some instruction and painting may be done in a Zoom class or in the studio if we have weather problems. ALL LEVELS WELCOME!
