Landscape, Canvas, Go!
Instructor: Mr. Anderson
This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of landscape painting on stretched canvas. Students will explore the techniques used to paint landscapes; how to select, use and care for brushes; and how to paint using acrylics. Historical and contemporary landscape paintings will be used to reference this painting genre and students will learn how landscape paintings are ‘constructed’ with paint. Basic color theory and paint mixing is taught. Students will also learn how to paint from an easel and how to paint from a reference image.
Prerequisites: No specific prerequisites required. A sketchbook for basic note taking and sketching rough drafts is highly encouraged.
Cost: $20 Landscape painting kit includes: basic brush set and pre-stretched and gessoed canvas. (Mr. Anderson will build this kit for you before the course begins. Prompt payment will ensure you receive a kit. Paints will be provided.)
