About this event

Join artist, Marilyn Hedlund, for an outdoor, in-person, plein air abstract landscape painting class where nature will be your guide.  Learn to use landscapes or seascapes as the basis for an abstract painting.  Your paintings won’t be realistic but will still be identifiable, as opposed to typical abstract art where the subject matter is removed.  Free up your expression and sense of confining boundaries by focusing on color combinations and painting from the heart.  Students will participate in critique sessions, one-on-one instruction and groups lessons in color and composition. Beginners are welcome and will be in a class with mixed skill levels. In addition to the following recommended supplies, we encourage students to bring in 1-2 works in progress for critique. Supply list: Portable easel, paper towels/rags, and jug of water and water container.   Paints Recommended: Liquitex Fine Art Acrylic Heavy Body or Golden Acrylics Ultramarine Blue Pthalo Blue (green shade) Cad yellow light Quinacradone magenta Napthol Crimson Titanium White Brushes Assorted China bristle brushes including filbert #10 and #12 1” to 2” painter’s brushes Surfaces Bristol paper Canvas Panels, etc. If you use papers you will need some kind of board or cardboard and clips Miscellaneous Roll of refrigerator/wax paper for palette White masking tape Various pens, pencils, charcoal, drawing tools Optional: notebook for taking notes
