I will be teaching three workshops this year. The first one will be a five-day plein air painting workshop, April 18-22 in Cary, North Carolina. See full description below...
This workshop will focus on learning and developing the techniques and philosophy of plein air painting. Plein air painting is the best way to not only gather accurate colors and values in a landscape, but it is the primary way to grow as a landscape painter. However, as they say, "It ain't easy." How to paint fast? How much detail do you need? How to determine colors and values? How do you deal with constantly changing light, wind, rain, bugs, etc.? These questions will be answered and the answers demonstrated. This will be more than just the typical demo then pat the student on the back workshops that are so prevalent these days. I am always very generous with information that will help the artist grow.
The cost is $550 per artist, and artists can register by contacting the Cary Arts Center at 919-469-4069. My last workshop in Cary sold out and there was a waiting list. Spots are already filling up, so this workshop will most likely sell-out quickly. See more information on my upcoming workshops at www.JasonTako.com/Workshops.html
