Plein Air Nature Painting ~ Exploring Your Voice en Plein Air

April 1 - 2, 2023
CLASS TITLE : Plein Air Nature Painting ~ Exploring Your Voice en Plein Air

DATE OF CLASS : April 1 & 2, 2023

Levels:
Students of ALL levels are welcome. It is good if students have a basic familiarity with the painting medium of their choice.

CLASS DESCRIPTION:
Find your own personal interpretation through Plein Air Painting to the stunning landscape and natural elements. Focusing on specific subjects in Nature, students will learn how to observe and paint these subjects and their surroundings, enriching each student’s understanding of how to paint the natural world.
The workshop will encourage each student to choose a subject which speaks to you, and has meaning for you. Maeve emphasizes for each student to explore their own voice in doing their work. The workshop is geared toward all levels, encouraging experienced painters to dive deeper for their creative voice, and helping less experienced painters explore their painting and grow.
The first day of the Workshop, we will convene inside and Maeve will give an historical overview on different aspects of Nature Painting.  Students learn of varying approaches for plein air painting, plein air techniques and  view paintings from various well known artists.
Once outdoors Maeve will paint a demonstration painting at the start of each session, discussing the various elements in the Landscape and how to approach these elements in your painting. How to use different brushes, as well as discussion of value and color, and how to enhance your sense of depth and atmosphere in your paintings are addressed in the demonstration.

After each morning demo, students will set up for the day at the painting location and paint.                                                               Maeve will help each student choose their subject, and help get them launched for the day of painting as needed. Once everyone is painting, Maeve circulates, spending time with each painter throughout the day, giving individual attention and instruction as you work.

We usually gather at the end of each day, sharing our paintings  and our painting experience with one another.

Maeve’s many years of teaching experience, and her kind encouraging approach help each painter grow and have a rewarding painting experience.
Oil or Acrylic.

SHORT DESCRIPTION

Paint Plein Air on the magnificent Mendocino coast with artist Maeve Croghan.  Students will enrich and deepen their painting process while connecting with the natural world. Focusing on specific subjects in Nature, students learn how to observe and paint these subjects and surroundings, creating an expressive and meaningful painting.
The workshop encourages each student to choose subjects which speak to you. Maeve emphasizes for students to explore their own voice in doing their work. The workshop is geared toward all levels, encouraging experienced painters to dive deeper for their creative voice, and helping less experienced painters explore their painting and grow.
Class will go to a different location each day, beginning a new painting en plein air. On the first day Maeve gives an historical overview presentation on Plein Air Painting.  Class then convenes at the painting location, where she gives demonstrations at the beginning of each painting session, then continues to give each painter guidance and help throughout the day.

Teaching Plein Air Workshop ~ 'Plein Air ~ Nature into Art'

April 9 - 10, 2022
'Plein Air ~ Nature into Art'
Teaching at the famous Mendocino Art Center
Weekend Workshop - April 9 &10

Explore the painting process while connecting with the natural world. Students will be guided by Maeve to keenly observe nature as she demonstrates and instructs how to paint from your observations and create an expressive and meaningful painting.

Focusing on specific subjects in nature, students will learn how to observe and paint these subjects and their surroundings, enriching each student’s understanding of nature.

The class will start in the studio with an historical overview presentation on different aspects of nature painting. We then continue outdoors to our painting location, which will offer a variety of painting subjects. Maeve will paint a demonstration painting, talking about the various elements in the landscape and how to approach each element in your own painting.

Students then set up for the day, beginning one to two paintings per day, in oil or acrylic. Maeve will spend time with each painter throughout the day, discussing where they are going with their painting, giving advice and perspective as desired or needed by the painter. Throughout the day Maeve guides and enables each student to produce a nearly finished painting of their nature subject.

The class is open to all levels. Maeve’s many years of teaching experience is enriching for beginning to advanced students.
