Making art in wild places is powerfully transforming, yet can be so overwhelming. A series of studies designed to get us all working with ease in the wild will focus on forest subjects and the unique response and mark of each individual. During gentle forays outdoors, we will collect ideas and experiment with painting techniques using watercolor, gouache and ink. Projects and demonstrations will include field-friendly approaches for mixing accurate colors, seeing and capturing gesture, form, detail, light and shadow, as well as finding ways to deepening your own mark and gesture. We will work in layers, with both care and wild abandon, to conjure up a sense of complexity found in wild habitats. You’ll leave with a series of inspiring processes for creating images in the field as well as strategies to continue with your work in the studio. All levels welcome. Accommodations included at the Clem Miller Environmental Education Center.
