Painting indoors and out, if the weather permits! Artistic appreciation of the beautiful Berkshire landscape. We will take a studied look at the components of landscape art: color and composition, style and technique, see what it is that makes a painting interesting and appealing, and what makes a painting different from a photograph. Working with these discoveries in mind, we will create our own landscape paintings, either outdoors in 'Plein Air,' or in the classroom, using photo references. 'Great art picks up where nature ends' Marc Chagall 'Art is not what you see, but what you make others see' Edgar Degas.
