Learn strategies to simplify your subject, create a strong composition with a thumbnail sketch, use color and value, and produce a painting that captures the essence of a scene, without TMI (too much information). Our first meeting will be held Thursday June 25, 9:30-11:30 at the art center, to go over supplies and basic techniques, and how to set up to work outside. The following 4 weeks we will meet at various locations around Milton including Houghton's Pond, the Eustis estate, and the banks of the Neponset. Most classes will begin with a demo and each student will receive individual attention. A supply list will be emailed before the first class, and be discussed at the first meeting. You will also need some form of portable easel. There are some pastel sets available to borrow through the MAC. Open to Adults and High School students. Media: Soft pastel, or other media of your choice. All levels are welcome.
