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 experienced brushstrokes, an artist conveys season, weather, and mood. In this Adult Studio Class, study several inspirational skyscapes from the permanent collection of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art with guidance from Teaching Artists focused on atmospheric effects?from subtle, impressionistic mists to clear and vibrant cobalt skies, accented by clouds featuring the many different shades of “white.” Apply color, layering, and glazing techniques to give shape, depth, and volume to the skies and clouds that grace their fall landscape paintings in watercolor and acrylic.

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