UPCOMING ART STUDIO WORKSHOPS
CANCELLED – The Power of Shape in Plein Air Painting – workshop with Jeff Markowsky | March 28 & 29, 2020
Artist Jeff Markowsky, winner of the 2019 Plein Air Best in Show Award, will lead a two-day workshop on plein air painting. Students are invited to draw inspiration from historic downtown St. Augustine with its subject matter of vibrant street scenes and picturesque architectural structures. Learn the fundamentals of painting en plein air by building forms with value, creating depth, and designing dominant shapes in a painting — all before paint is even applied to the canvas!
Space is limited. Artists registered for the 2020 St. Augustine Plein Air Paint Out will receive a discount on the workshop registration fee.
Ideal for beginner and intermediate painters. In the workshop artists will learn:
- To draw Notans (light & dark elements) and transcribe the concept into small oil paintings
- The fundamentals of value, hue, saturation and temperature and how to build form with value
- The illusion of depth through fore, middle and background
A complete supply list will be sent to participants, but suggested items to bring include: a pochade or outdoor easel, oil paints, brushes, panels (8×10 & 10×12), brush cleaner, paper towels, water.
