Sam Morrow’s Plein Air Painting – Wednesdays 10-1PM

Sam Morrow Archive: Adult

Taking advantage of the summer weather, Sam will conduct Plein Air classes, teaching traditional painting techniques and methods.  (On days not suitable for outdoor work, the class will be inside working from a photograph). Sam will go through all basic processes from under painting, through body painting, glazing, scumbling, wet into wet, wet onto dry, transparency and opacity, to name a few.  Group discussion will be a feature in class as well as individual personal instruction.  The aim is to bring out the uniqueness in the student and all levels are welcome from absolute beginner to advanced.  This class is for oil or acrylic painter.
