The New York Academy of Art
Plein Air Oil Painting Class
Monday and Wednesday 9:00am – 12:00pm
3/14 4/27 2016
Breathe new life into your studio practice this summer by exploring plein air painting. Visit parks in and around New York City, sketching and painting outdoors. This class will explore approaches to working on-site, how to efficiently compose and complete plein air paintings. Emphasis will be placed on how to effectively translate the often complex 3-D landscape onto a 2-D picture plane using thumbnail sketches, limited palettes and the thoughtful use of colors, values, shapes, edges and textures. This course will meet twice a week, Monday and Tuesday, throughout June.
