Ted Matz Plein Air Workshop presented by The Art Students' Guild of Brevard

OCTOBER 15th and 16th  
9AM-12PM and 1PM- 4PM

The focus of the workshop is to help each participant understand key elements of hue, value, and temperature. The artist will learn how to make colors stronger and more saturated, pushing values for more dramatic impact and to control the temperature of the painting for the overall effect that is has on the interpretation of the painting.
You will learn how to take a painting from “OK” to “GREAT”.
The class is open to any medium. Each day will begin with a demo illustrating core plein air principles. Each participant will get one-on-one advice. There will be group discussion and critique at the end of each day.
Note: In the event of inclement weather, the participant must bring with them several reference photos of landscapes.
The cost of the workshop is $225 for Guild Members and $275 for non-members.This is due by September 15, 2016
