Starr’s Island Visiting Artist Series at Katy’s Cabin Presents:
A One-Day Plein Air Painting Workshop
Saturday, June 8, 2019; 9:30am to 4:30pm, (rain or shine)
Come and join me at my cottage for a full day workshop led by visiting artist Jonathan Davis on the art and practice of painting en plein air.
You’ll learn about how to compose a live scene, reduce the scene to simple values, colours and shapes, tricks for making plein air easier and much more. Jonathan will begin the day with a tutorial and demonstration and then provide 1:1 instruction throughout the day. By day’s end, you’ll feel more comfortable and confident with your plein air technique.
As this is plein air, we’ll be painting out of doors unless the weather isn’t cooperating, in which case we can set up inside my roomy, light filled cabin where we may work on a still life or portraiture.
This workshop is suitable for all levels of painting abilities and beginners are very welcome!
Instruction will primarily be in oils, however you are welcome to bring the materials you are most comfortable with.
A light lunch and post painting snack (with libation!) will be provided. For those with specific dietary needs, you may want to bring a few snacks of your own, just in case.
Materials list provided upon registration.
$100 for members and $115 for non-members.
Paymentcan be made in advance, to secure your spot. You can pay via etransfer to email@example.com via HHA website. Drop-ins are welcome, however please note maximum capacity of 15 painters to avoid disappointment.
