Four major types of landscape painting will be demonstrated over the two days: Renaissance glazing, Alla Prima (Plein Air) landscape, Impressionist approaches, and Modernist/Fauvist approaches. The afternoon session and second day will focus on hands-on landscape painting based on styles of the student’s choice. Reproductions of landscapes will be provided for the hands on experience.
