Due to the pandemic all workshops and classes are conducted via Zoom
Sept. 10-11, 2022
The transition times (or shoulder seasons) in New England are famously fickle, but those temperature fluctuations create the perfect opportunity to paint fog. Fog is a wonderful weather effect that's fun to paint, and fall is an especially good time to practice- we get a lot of fog during this season, but more importantly, the vibrant foliage and colorful grasses provide nice contrast, while the fog provides a moody, mysterious feeling appropriate to the season.
In this workshop participants will learn techniques for creating soft underpaintings, and to control value and contrast, which are vitally important elements in these scenes. A reference photo will be provided by the instructor. (Note: We'll be painting the landscape shown on the left in this workshop.) Experienced students also have the option of using their own photograph.
This workshop includes demonstrations, lots of feedback during class, and a detailed critique of your painting by email. The demonstration portion of classes are recorded and available for 1 week after the workshop ends.
Saturday - Sunday, Sept. 10 & 11
Online via Zoom
Minimum of 3, maximum of 8 participants.
Register online using a credit card, or contact Meg if you'd like to reserve a spot and pay by check.
"Meg is an excellent teacher. I like the way workshops are done, including the email feedback given afterwards, it's very helpful. I look forward to taking online classes again in the future."
"I enjoyed the workshop very much and hope to take more online workshops with Meg. I learned a lot and the feedback is wonderful!"
"Taking a class from Meg is sitting at the feet of a master, one who shares all her secrets and techniques without covering over your own personal style. There's a wide gap between doing and teaching, Meg closes that with patience, enthusiasm, and specific, very helpful critiques. I'd recommend her well-planned and creative lessons to anyone wanting to learn and improve their artistic abilities."
"I took my first pastel class with Meg and totally enjoyed myself. The new techniques were fun and Meg was both encouraging and also offered gentle criticisms, which are so necessary in order to grow. I have decided to continue with pastel and hope to take more workshops with Meg soon. Thank You Meg!"
"This workshop was fantastic!"
