The Painted Landscape: Oil Workshop

Join instructor Emily Sullivan in a 3-part workshop to learn the fundamentals of landscape painting. We will begin by learning about and practicing with oil paints, and then work to depict a variety of nature scenes. We will work from student-provided photographs, and en plein air (weather permitting). Additionally, will learn about landscape painters throughout history, as well as contemporary depictions of landscape. No prior painting or oil paint experience necessary.
