Carlisle, PA 17013
Visit Website

Teacher: Lina Ferrara
Ages: Teen – Adult

Learn to capture the landscape in front of you. This class offers a step by step method to tackle the challenge of painting outside. Discover how to edit complex scenes, and how to train your eye to help you create atmosphere in a three-dimensional painting. See how to create useful thumbnail sketches that speed up the painting process and help to explore composition alternatives. Learn to see the quality of light and shadow.

All levels are welcome. This class will enhance the skill of the experienced artist as well as give confidence to the new painter. Do not feel intimidated if you're a beginner or if it's been a while since you've painted outdoors. Lina will be doing demos and give instruction on the basics.

At the first meeting, Lina will go over the supplies, explain the essentials of plein air painting, cover what to look for and how to begin a painting, talk about equipment and do a demo. Class meets at the same site several times and you can either finish up a painting started there previously or begin a new one.

Safe social distancing will be maintained.
