Come paint the inspiring landscape and embrace the exciting challenge of painting and drawing outdoors. Simple hikes will take class members to the riverbanks, meadows and countryside within the historic town of Concord. There will be an emphasis on drawing the form and structure of the landscape, seeking a certain grace and order from nature. There will be an added push to hone observational and design skills to seek visual unity when composing a preliminary sketch. Working small, participants will create quickly, recording shape, line and color, allowing nature to dictate a response. Students of all skill levels welcome, using oil, watercolor, acrylic or gouache.
