En Plein Air Classes

 

www.ddfagallery.com

 

Join us at Hidden Pond on Tuesdays in July for painting and drawing classes en plein air. Plein air painters believe that there is a certain sense of communion with nature that is captured by working in the fields or woods where one can touch, smell and observe the beauty that surrounds them which cannot be achieved by working indoors. Plein air painters choose to work outside so they can immerse themselves in the sensual riches of nature and capture the sense of the moment in their paintings in order to preserve it and share it with others.


Classes are scheduled as follows:

A few words from the instructors:


H. M. Saffer, II – The use of color, composition, existing light and overall principles of design will be discussed as we paint out-doors. Stylistic diversity will be encouraged.

 

Maj Kalfus - Plein Air drawing, by it's very nature, is fleeting, a moment in time, an impromptu event. The art enthusiast attending my classes will explore the out of doors with an eye for both scenic and close up subjects. We will work on simple drawings in graphite or charcoal on paper and move into contour drawings and then design more finished pieces in color, using either soft pastels, oil pastels, color pencils or similar mediums.

 

 

Located in Mid-Columbia County, on a rise in a

clearing surrounded by trees, Hidden Pond provides

a serene environment in a beautiful rural setting

just five short miles from Hudson, NY.
