ADVANCED OIL PAINTING WORKSHOPS IN VERMONT
The classes will be kept small so as to offer much individualized attention. There is a working classroom for inclimate weather as well as bathroom and kitchen facilities on site. The workshops will focus on plein air painting as a foundation for more completed and finished paintings in the studio. Each workshop will offer demonstrations, time for individual painting and group critiques.
About the Classes
"I will be offering workshops in 2019 at my home and studio, Meadowland Farm in Richford, Vermont. I would love to see you there!"
- Andrew Orr -
Classes and workshops are offered in the medium of oil. Those who work in acrylic are welcomed.
Skill Level: Intermediate/Pro
Classes will be mostly plein air with an emphasis on using plein air studies as a means of a foundation for more finished studio work. It would be best to have some basic knowledge of oil paints, color mixing and the process of painting on location. (A basic course for oil painting will be designed for those who are not as familiar with the medium, color mixing and the like. This would be a weekly class held as a series.)
Class Size: 3-5 Students
