During this course, students and instructor will discuss trends found in art history and contemporary landscape ‘plein air’ paintings as well as explore strategies for simplifying the process of painting outside. Students will complete pencil, ink wash and watercolor studies using both book references and outdoor scenery found on the grounds of the McKinney Center and around Jonesborough. Various natural elements of the landscape, such as clouds, trees, rocks and water will be observed, as well as buildings and other man-made structures. All skill levels welcome!
