This is a class about producing paintings directly from sketches made from nature. The sketch contains coded information that can be used for painting. The skill to be learned is how to transform the sketch into a painting without loss of the freshness and spontaneity contained in the sketch. This technique derives from the Italian I Macchiaioli group in Tuscany. Jerry Ross, the instructor has years of experience in this approach with many exhibits in Italy. Italian painting terms and ideas related too this technique will be covered. Students can use any paint medium. Oil painters must use odourless mineral spirits or an equivalent. $95 for two 3-hour sessions.
