Atmospheric Painting Workshop, Arrowmont School, Gatlinburg, TN

Join me, October 14 – 20, 2018, in the gorgeous East Tennessee Mountains of Gatlinburg, TN, where I will be teaching a week-long course in atmospheric painting at The Arrowmont School of Art. In this workshop, students will learn to interpret the landscape through process of introspection, observation and application.

By painting with acrylic and oil, you will create mood-driven art by layering, subtracting and adding molding pastes, gel mediums, cold wax medium and glazes. You will explore composition, structural elements of landscapes, color mixing, capturing light, principles of art and design along with a daily mixture of demonstrations, studio time and individual consultations. This is not a traditional plein-air course, but you will paint out-of-doors, weather permitting, and in the studio. This course is open to all skill levels however an understanding of color theory and basic painting skills is helpful.
