Design & Perspective en Plein Air

Location:  St. Joseph, MO

Skill level:  beginner/intermediate
Medium:  oil, pastel
Class size:  3 - 10
Tuition:  $180

This special workshop will focus on design (choosing, cropping subject matter) and perspective (values, creating depth). Regardless the medium or style you paint in, this workshop should open your eyes with knowledge in how to improve and create stronger paintings. Many times artists feel stuck when time is against them. They are unsure of how to interpret what they intend. They begin to have second thoughts half-way through a painting. Confidence is lacking and they are not sure how to fix it.
