Leave all the heavy gear behind and be mobile with your plein air set up. On August 8th, we will gather to go over the supply list and details for creating a very light and portable plein air painting kit.  This set up is meant for the artist to be very mobile and walk around to create several plein air sketches. On August 22 and 23, we will gather to use our pared down plein air kits in the field.  Students can expect to complete many plein air studies in and around the Academy Art Museum and will also learn how to:

Create a small plein air pochade box
Work with a limited palette
Simplifying complex elements of the landscape
Capture the subject quickly and accurately
Create strong compositions
Employ value/ color theory and atmospheric perspective
Demonstrations, group critiques, and individual personal instruction are included. All experience levels accepted but some previous experience with oil paint medium is preferred.

Part 1 of this class will be conducted in the studio with social distancing, masks, etc. Part 2 will be conducted outdoors.
