2016 Selma plein air Plein-air Tips & Tricks with Amy Peterson

All skill levels, ages 16+

During this workshop, students will learn or improve the techniques that are used in plein-air painting. Plein-air painting can be challenging, as weather and light conditions can change rapidly. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, everyone can enjoy and learn from plein-air painting! Teaching artist, Amy Peterson, will share ways to save time, simplify the task at hand, and rethink shapes to make your paintings stronger. Amy will teach old-school, low-tech, methods of plein-air painting, as well as some tips and tricks when it comes to using your cell phone camera as a tool.

Plein-air painting can be done anywhere, even in your own backyard or neighborhood. For this workshop, students will be painting at a local staple in the Birmingham area, Jones Valley Teaching Farm. Jones Valley Teaching Farm uses food as a foundation so that young people can lead, create, and grow a healthy future for themselves and their community. They envision communities inspired by food and transformed by youth. For more information on Jones Valley Teaching Farm, please visit their website www.jvtf.org.
