Instructor: Gin Lammert
Students will work outdoors in the fresh air while creating a painting under the guidance of the instructor. A demonstration will be given at the start of Day 1. Students will then set up their own easels and workstation, select their own scene to create from and work for the remainder of the day and all of day 2 with careful guidance from the instructor.
Details about pastels, different papers used to create different effects, along with techniques of underpainting, will be discussed during class. Hand out information covering what is discussed will be available to students.
Because we will be outside be prepared for any weather. Hat, bug spray, sun screen, umbrella (for shade and for rain).
Join others as they gather in the Villages of Van Buren to learn from the resident artisans in their personal studios. Spend a weekend plein air painting along the Des Moines River, or step back in time as you throw bowls in a Pottery Shop. The inspiring and relaxing atmosphere of scenic Van Buren County, Iowa is, and will continue to be, a haven for creative beings.
