This workshop aims to build, sharpen and revisit those skills which enable the artist to respond with paint to the changing conditions of light and color found out-of-doors. Participants make direct, one-sitting paintings every morning and afternoon, and also have opportunities as the week progresses to develop more sustained works. The wooded and vista-filled environs of the Bennington campus—where physical spaces are by turns intimate and expansive—provide our subject matter. A look at the traditions of landscape painting, a side trip to North Bennington for painting on the grounds of a beautiful nearby estate, as well as critiques and analyses fill out the week.
We're sorry, this class is fully enrolled.
