Landscape Painting: At the Barnes Arboretum & Merion Botanical Park
Painting can be boiled down to two fundamental concepts: 1) ‘Learning to see as an artist,’ and by extension making marks that interpret what we see and feel, and 2) ‘Learning to control your medium.’ With these two fundamentals in mind we will create energetic landscape paintings on sight at the Barnes Arboretum and/or Merion Botanical Park. Possible rain date is 6/10.
