Join us for classes and workshops featuring a wide variety of mediums in different Park settings.
New classes will be added throughout the year, so check back frequently!
This course will cover some of the essential concepts, techniques, and tools needed to begin the adventure of landscape painting. Students will be painting on location, or in “plein air”. Students will practice several painting exercises, working in a limited palette of colors in oils. Students will complete 1-2 finished paintings by the end of the course. The course is open to all levels, but some experience in oils is helpful. Students furnish materials from a supply list provided.
The course instructor is Matthew Lee, a professional, local landscape painter. Learn more about Matthew here.
