Painting Spring Skies in Watercolor & Acrylic

Saturday, April 25, 2015
9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Location: Ridley-Tree Education Center at McCormick House
Registration Fee: $85 SBMA Members/$90 Non-Members (includes all materials for the class)

Viewers know just how important cloud-filled skies are in a landscape painting. With just a few brushstrokes, an artist can convey season, weather, and mood. In this Adult Studio Class, we’ll explore atmospheric effects ranging from impressionistic mists to vibrant cobalt skies, accented by clouds that feature many different shades of “white.” Demonstrated color, layering, and glazing techniques will give shape, depth, and volume to the skies and clouds that grace your landscape paintings. We’ll paint with watercolor, gouache, and acrylics on a variety of toned papers. Our inspiration will be works currently on view at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.

Facilitators: Joni Chancer & Gina Rester-Zodrow, and Itoko Maeno, SBMA Teaching Artists
