The first five day course. It is a thorough review for any artist, but not too difficult for a serious beginner. Catherine demonstrates how to stretch paper, paint washes, mix colors, create textures, create a sense of depth and lay out a good composition. Most of the week is spent in the barn/studio working on exercises and still lives.
The second five day Sketch Class takes place the following week, for students comfortable enough with the medium to tackle the outdoors (weather permitting). Catherine explains linear perspective and we begin drawing buildings in the village. We discuss aerial perspective and paint local landscapes. We spend one day sketching animals, sometimes at the local zoo, and one morning sketching in a local market.
This week is for more independent painters though Catherine is constantly available to help and advise. She will be painting and sketching with everyone else, to demonstrate her approach and technique. She seriously recommends students to take the first class before enrolling in this class, as in the past, students have struggled if they begin working in the field without the warm up class.
