2013 Plein Air Workshops
This year Tracey Frugoli will host a two-day workshop May 5th and 6th from 9am - 4pm (EST) at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art in Apalachicola.
"Simplify Your Way to Better Paintings": Learn to distill the essence of a scene and paint with more impact. Through demonstration and hands-on exercises, you will gain an understanding of how a painter sees and edits a subject to create paintings that grab a viewer's attention. All skill levels are welcomed.
The instructor will be working in oils, but all mediums are welcomed.
On May 12th and 13th, from 9am - 4pm (EST) at the Apalachicola Center for History, Culture and Art in Apalachicola. Greg LaRock will present a "Guiding The Eye" workshop focusing on the basics of plein air painting, with emphasis on guiding the eye around in a painting. Instruction is suited to advanced beginner and up and is designed for oil painters who wish to take their paintings to the next level. Objectives include: organizing elements, maintaining and supporting a focal point, achieving depth and atmosphere, understanding the importance of large masses, the importance of edges, color temperature and values, and how to take a 3-dimensional landscape and turn it into a 2-dimensional painting.
Individual instruction will be available, and a list of supplies and objectives can be obtained by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each Workshop fee is $200.00, with reservation and payment available here.
