Preparing to Paint the Landscape en Plein Air with Barbara Thomas

August 8 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

Monday, August 8 from 1 to 3 pm, Online via Zoom

In this single-session Zoom workshop, instructor Barbara Thomas will lead students through the rudiments of landscape painting: composition, light and shadow, how to create distance, and specific techniques for clouds, trees, grass, water, and other landscape elements. 

Open to all artists who want tips on painting outside, this class will be a preparation for the Plein Air Landscape taught by Barbara later in August on location in Rockland. 

Open to 14 online students, beginner to experienced.

Barbara Thomas has been an artist all her life and an artist-teacher for over 20 years, teaching at leading arts and education institutions. Barbara has an MFA degree in Art and Design from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. She has a deep knowledge of art history and the art-making process. Barbara creates curriculum and teaches art classes at The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, NY, Whittle School, and Studios, and she leads private drawing classes, Drawing in the Galleries, at The Metropolitan Museum in New York. A life-long lover of nature and ecology, Barbara devotes her own art-making themes to the natural world. Her own work in drawing, painting, and video, centers on landscape, flora, and the seasons.
