Workshop Description  

This will be a 3 day plein air (outdoor) painting workshop consisting of brief lectures, group discussions, outdoor painting demonstrations, and student painting opportunities.  The main focus of Scott’s workshop will be to simplify your painting process.  You will learn the fundamental elements (drawing, composition, values, and color) to create stronger paintings.   

We are planning for a small group of 8-12 students which allows Scott to personally help each artist regardless of their skill level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced).  You may need help finding a scene to paint, setting up equipment, drawing, composing, mixing colors, creating softer edges, finding color harmony, or painting faster outside. Whatever your artistic goals, Scott will help each student with their individual needs.

The workshop is designed for oil painting.  If you have never painted in oils, this will be a good workshop to begin.  Other mediums are welcome, though the workshop will be most helpful for artists working in oils.

Outdoor painting locations will be at Dallas Park and Rankin Lake, near Dallas, NC. If the weather is adverse we will paint indoors with reference materials.
