Painting I, Waterbased

The Impressionist painters experienced the advantages of painting en plein air; the natural light and openness of the outdoors provides further authenticity to the subject matter. In this course, you’ll be honing your studio practice using water-based paints on Cranbrook’s scenic 319-acres. Working from a variety of subjects, students will use ink, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media, building color, tone, and temperature. Learn how to strengthen your foundational skills of paint application, composition, color theory, and perspective while being introduced to new techniques and methods that lend themselves to painting in the great outdoors!
