Plein Air Painting
Instructor: Emily Davis Adams
What does it mean to paint in direct relationship to a specific location? In this course students will combine comprehensive entry-level introduction to materials and methods of plein-air painting with a critical dialogue about and creative approach to working ‘en plein air’ in the twenty-first century. The focus of the course is on direct observation of color as it is influenced by light, developing a critical response to our relationship with the places we inhabit over time, as well as the practicalities of working outside of a studio setting.
