In this class each month we will focus on a different aspect of traditional art. Emphasis will be placed on the elements and principles of design and students will learn techniques that will help develop their artistic skills.
This month students will learn the basic principles of landscape painting and have the opportunity to experiment with them using impressionist master paintings as a reference. Because sunlight is always shifting, Monet decided to paint the same scenes over and over to show how the color changes as the light moves. He was pretty determined, too. He painted over 30 paintings of a cathedral in France. Each painting shows how the light affects not only the cathedral’s color but also how light affects the details in the architecture. He set up a series of easels and used different paint colors to paint the cathedral at dawn, mid-day and sunset. Students will have the goal to paint 2 landscapes of similar scenes using impressionist techniques.
No experience is necessary, and all supplies are provided.
