Plein Air Painting at Arcosanti, Arizona

Plein Air Painting at Arcosanti, Arizona

Welcome to a workshop designed to give students a solid approach to plein air painting. Students will be working and staying on the grounds of Arcosanti. After breakfast our days will begin with an informative demonstration to show you what steps to take in your approach to plein-air painting. After the demo students will be allowed to paint for the remainder of the day. After painting students will gather to have a light discussion on how they did during the day and what help they need to move forward.

Key points will be: How to select what to paint, How to plan what to paint using small sketches, Establishing values Pre-mixing your colors, Painting Techniques, How to know when to stop painting. All levels are welcome, but some experience will help. If you are new to painting please reach out to me so that I may help you prepare for this exciting new stage. I want every student to learn and grow as an artist. www.amerybohling.com
