MIXED MEDIA ABSTRACT LANDSCAPE, with Tim Ebneth
Thursday August 6, 13, and 20, 12 to 3 pm. $120
This class paints, draws and collages the landscape en plein air. Working with familiar and new mediums, students will explore combining water-based paints; acrylic, watercolor, gouache, plus graphite and charcoal to create collage on paper. Each week the class will work with new combinations of materials so students find their own balance of abstracted landscape. Materials list provided upon registration.

FIGURE DRAWING in NATURE, with Gary Finelli
Saturday, August 8, 9 am to noon. $50
There’s still room in what should be a fun and challenging class! It won’t involve a nude en plein air, but there will be people with props taking up poses of different types and for different amounts of time in various places on the grounds. Gary will offer an hour of instruction before students work with the model(s). Bring a sketch book, drawing supplies of your choosing, and a comfortable chair. All levels.

EXPLORING PERSPECTIVE IN HUDSON
with David Lesako

Tuesday August 11, 18, and 25, 10 am to 1 pm.  $120
Learn the basics of one- and two-point perspective by drawing buildings. Understand simple shapes, forms, shading and shadowing using the medium of your choice (pencils, watercolor, both). Classes will be en plein air in the lovely town of Hudson, and will emphasize simple skills meant to improve  your rendering of landscapes that include buildings like old houses, barns and farms.
