Painting Outdoors * Plein Air for Teens

98 Water Street, DUMBO
  • Ages:

Paint outside with us, capture the majestic Brooklyn Bridge or the inspiring parks and nature that surrounds us. This Plein Air Painting Course will inspire students to respond & record their surroundings in a highly individual & authentic way. The light changes quickly outside, so you will learn how to paint quickly and by pushing yourself to paint quickly and mix color accurately, you improve your painting skills and hone your abilities. In a full class course, students learn how to employ painting techniques & different brush applications: how to use color and light, perspective and shadows to create drama & give your work depth. Work in abstract form or realistically- its up to you! This is also an awesome painting class for teens already showing a keen interest in pursuing a career in the visual arts or those thinking about putting together a portfolio. Get inspired and create several finished canvas in a full class course. On bad weather days we will stay in studio and take inspiration from personal references- photos and pictures that inspire us.

Fee includes all art supplies but NOT large canvas. Please note if you want to work on a larger scale please bring a large canvas with you to class.
