Adult Art Classes
Painting Outside – An Introduction – September-October 2021
Thursday mornings 9:30-12:30 – 5 classes
An In-person class! Sept 23 – Oct 21, 2021 – on the Zullo deck (though we may choose other spots close by.) Materials: charcoal, pencil, paper, oils or acrylic paint.
It is incredibly rewarding to distill intense and changing sensations into something only you can capture. Photographs will help us but nature provides all the inspiration. The class takes place on Zullo’s balcony/rooftop deck 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 selecting what to draw or paint, dealing with changing light and atmosphere and the most important elements of drawing (how tall, how wide, at what angle) and painting (values, simplification, color). Some content and work may be done in the gallery (or over Zoom) if we have weather problems.
ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME. WE WILL BUILD ON WHAT WE DID IN THE SUMMER VERSION OF THIS CLASS IN A WAY THAT WELCOMES NEWCOMERS. ON MOST DAYS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO WORK LONGER THAN THE CLASS TIME INDICATES.
RON KROUK has an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and received his BA from Brandeis University. He was also a scholarship student at the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture in Maine. He has drawn and painted since childhood, attended art classes at the Art Students League in NYC while in high school, and studied with Michael Mazur at Brandeis where he gradually found himself moving away from art toward the field of psychology. He worked in that field for several years before returning to art school. In 2010 he retired from IBM, returned to art, studied with George Nick, and is now teaching at Concord Art, NewArt and Danforth Art. His work has been favorably reviewed by Sebastian Smee in the Boston Globe. Ron is a gifted teacher — as his many loyal students will attest. He is intrigued by the mystery of representing the three dimensional world in two dimensions and by communicating that to his students. For more about Ron and to see his work go to: www.RonKrouk.com.
