Gain skills that will allow you to paint fresh, life like paintings that express the light and excitement of the landscape. A great way to enjoy your local landscape, history, and record your travels. First class will be in the studio - We'll start with an evaluation of the students basic skills, their needs, their goals. We'll review materials and a check list of essentials for painting  outside. Six classes will be taught outside at various locations in the area. Each will start with a demo stressing the basics of good outdoor painting: composition, value (tone) and color. Outdoor painting is all about capturing the light and this will be emphasized. The goal will be for everyone to execute a finished painting on every session. We will paint gardens, lakes, the Chattahoochee River, street scenes, historical architecture and more. Finally there will be a class in the studio on how to enlarge your work and tips on showing your work professionally; including varnishing, framing, and presentation. We will also review local competition opportunities and application procedures. The final class will be a class show organized by the students
