In this introductory drawing and painting workshop, students will explore a variety of mixed media skills in pursuit of their own “mystical landscape.” Building from the late-20th century’s back-to-the-land movement when artists fled cities seeking the spiritual and transcendent qualities of nature, these landscapes will work to capture the feeling of a place rather than a realistic representation. Students will be introduced to basic skills in landscape painting including thumbnail sketching, compositional and value studies, colour charts and surface preparation, before moving on to a final landscape project that encourages experimentation, play and rule breaking.
This course is hosted online. As such, students are required to have access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access during class time. Access to a web camera and microphone is strongly recommended. Additional materials required.
