The grounds of this National Historic Site nestled in the Catskill mountains, holds by itself limitless motifs and subjects to inspire the creativity within the beholder.
We will learn to see as painters. Nature is a diverse and complex subject, and must be distilled to its essentials. A subject’s visual strength lies in its simplicity. Using the properties and strengths of painting, we will interpret nature through the relationships of, color and value, shapes and line, into a two dimensional reality, that best expresses nature as art.
Work in your choice of oil or acrylic paints on canvas, linen or paper, whichever medium best suits your ideas and own personal vision. Students will be encouraged to work with such tools as palette knives and large brushes, enabling them to see the larger visual issues. The tools will also help to expedite the completion of work from morning to afternoon. Students will work on different canvases from morning and afternoon.
