Enrol in Acrylics - Trees, Rocks, Water & Sky
Course Code: ARTS2350
Bring the outside in as you paint the skies, trees, hills and waterways of the beautiful Canadian landscape. Reference images will be used to select a scene, organize an effective composition, apply a simple value scale, and choose a colour harmony for each of your acrylic paintings. Daily visual lectures, demonstrations, and step-by-step painting exercises will provide successful strategies for painting the elements of the outdoors. Develop your artistic fluency with techniques that depict atmospheric perspective, water and its reflections, skies that are powerful or peaceful, rugged rocks, and trees of different shapes and species. Put all this together to paint a personal perception of your natural surroundings. Individual attention and daily discussions in a supportive studio environment will help to evolve your unique painting style. Reference landscape photos will be available, but you are welcome to bring your own as well. Instruction is suitable for beginners as well as experienced painters. Connecting with nature is good for your heart and great for your art!
