Course Description:

Get out into the fresh spring air and celebrate Earth Day by joining Gallery 9 artist JT Harding for a one-day plein air landscape painting workshop on the Norwood Common!  The Common provides a variety of unique compositions, juxtaposing the natural and urban landscape. 

The emphasis of the class will be on observing and mixing the varieties of green in the spring landscape.  Students will also be coached on other important fundamentals of landscape painting including composition, gray-scale drawing, atmosheric perspective, and the play of light on objects. 

The workshop begins with an introduction and demo at the start and provides individual instruction throughout the day. It’s sure to be a lot of fun for confident beginner and experienced painters alike!

You’ll leave with full color studies and the confidence to apply your learning to other challenging landscape subject matter and light conditions.
