Event details

Join artist, Marilyn Hedlund, for an outdoor, in-person, plein air abstract landscape painting class where nature will be your guide. Learn to use landscapes or seascapes as the basis for an abstract painting. Your paintings won’t be realistic but will still be identifiable, as opposed to typical abstract art where the subject matter is removed. Free up your expression and sense of confining boundaries by focusing on color combinations and painting from the heart.

Students will participate in critique sessions, one-on-one instruction and groups lessons in color and composition. Beginners are welcome and will be in a class with mixed skill levels. Please bring your own, portable easel.

Supply list: Portable easel, paper towels/rags, and jug of water and water container.
