Connecting with the Natural World:
Elemental Landscape with Amy Wynne
Wednesdays, May 5 – June 2, 2021
11:00 – 1:00PM
Getting outside offers us the chance to be inspired by the beauty of the world around us. This month-long online landscape sketching class is done on your own terms, from your window, in your backyard or further afield. Your visual interpretation of the landscape will be supported by weekly online demonstrations covering key concepts related to creating successfully expressive landscape imagery. Prompts related to simplification, structure, compositional dynamics, creating depth, value and a limited palette will be offered each week. Meditative journaling exercises will deepen your connection with a sense of place. Weekly sharing of imagery, supportive dialogues and suggested readings will strengthen your interpretation of the landscape in any medium.
All levels of experience welcome.
