9:30 am - 12:30 pm
In three short hours, plein air artists must draw on their knowledge of drawing, value, color and composition and produce a painting. Like poetry or a sprint, this is painting at it’s most concentrated as artists must focus on the essentials. It is not easy, but the results cannot be duplicated any other way. Weather permitting, this class will meet on site at various locations on the north shore. First class meets at Byfield Community Art Center for a short slideshow before heading out. Short demos, handouts. Supply list on registration.
9:30am – 12:30pm
May 10, 17, 24, 31, June 7 & 14
Members $225, Non-members $240

About the Instructor
Sue Charles, BFA Painting, Boston University College of Fine Art. Sue has been painting for twenty years and has taught landscape painting classes since 2002. She emphasizes teaching the acquisition of observation skills—perceiving a painting as a series of abstract hierarchal relationships— and rejects formulaic approaches to painting, trusting and encouraging each artist’s original work methods and expression. Sue has won numerous awards for her paintings and is represented by the Powers Gallery, the Alpers Gallery, the Islesford Artists Gallery and the South Street Gallery. She works in studio 110 at 14 Cedar Street Studios in Amesbury, MA.
