Impressionistic Drawing: Winter Landscapes Online
Although we know them best for their work in oil, painters like Monet, Cassatt, and Renoir were also very accomplished in the mediums of charcoal and pencil. Come join us as we work from the world around us, learning how to capture the wintry landscapes Minnesota is so well known for. An artist instructor will discuss simple techniques for rendering the fleeting elements of nature - light and movement - and show us some handy ways to represent perspective, proportion, and depth of field. Under their guidance, we will learn better how to analyze a landscape, break down the underlying structure, and render that on paper. Have fun and make beautiful art in this easy, relaxed drawing class.
You will need these materials for the class:
- Paper (any paper will do but drawing paper is recommended)
- Pencils (any pencil will do, but having a 6B or darker is recommended)
- Eraser (any eraser will work; a kneaded eraser is recommended)
- Drawing charcoal (willow, vine, or charcoal pencils recommended)
This program will be presented virtually via WebEx. Participants will be emailed a link prior to the start of the program.
