Landscape Painting: Focus on Design with Jill Carver | Ages 18+
Join nationally renowned visiting artist Jill Carver for a four-day indoor landscape oil painting intensive. Through a variety of exercises each day, Jill will teach specific design principles to help deconstruct and then reconstruct landscapes into strong painting designs. Focusing on compositional principles and design fundamentals, students will learn how to divide the canvas into dominant shapes, create a strong foreground lead-in, establish interest through dark/light patterns, color harmony and pattern, and control eye movement through the painting to a carefully placed focal area. The class will include demos, group brainstorming sessions, Powerpoint presentations, and the option of having a group evening meal. This class is open to advanced beginners, intermediate and professional painters alike. Though primarily for oil painters, other mediums are also welcome.
