Plein Air Painting Workshop with Jill Pottle
Saturday, September 20-Sunday, September 21
10AM-3PM daily
Members $200, Nonmembers $220

Enjoy the outdoors in this two day workshop painting on location and viewing the amazing vista of Fruitlands. Working on location helps to build skills in perspective, recording information quickly and capturing the rich natural light. Students will learn how to simplify forms, develop overlapping areas of trees and hills to create depth, emulate color relationships in the sky and land and other compositional issues. Participants will learn how to get going quickly and how to capture the scenery fast with big shapes and ideas. Join us and find out how exciting it is to capture a moment in time in paint!

Space is limited and registration is required. To register, contact programming@fruitlands.org or call (978) 456-3924, ext. 291
