Beginner Plein Air Workshop at AMC Highland Center

October 7, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


In this one-day outdoor painting workshop, students will enjoy the process of setting up an easel outdoors and painting the beautiful White Mountain landscape “En Plein Air.”

Through demonstration and individual attention in oils, students will learn how to distill the important information from their observation and translate it onto the canvas. Melanie Levitt from Jackson Art will address the importance of sketching, how to create depth in a painting composition, color mixing formulas, light effects, and other tips for painting outdoors. All this will be taught in an understandable step-by-step process which will lead students to improve their ability to see the landscape and create a finished painting in a short time. This class is suitable for the total beginner or the intermediate student who wants to learn how to paint outdoors. Students will complete at least one painting a day. No need to invest in expensive equipment. We will provide all the supplies you need to paint for the day (ie: use of plein air easel, paints, brushes, canvas, palette, turpentine, etc. (If weather is not suitable for outdoor painting, we will paint from photographs in the Lodge.)

This class is limited to 8 students to allow for lots of individual attention. All students will need to bring a small sketchbook. Call (603) 278-4453 to reserve your spot. Reservations required.

$180 for full day workshop and lunch.
