Using chalk pastels, we will venture outdoors to create a series of Alla Prima landscape drawings. This course focuses on color relationships, suggestive space, and gesture. Through on-site drawing and demonstrations, students will also sharpen drawing methods and observational techniques. The first set of classes will meet at Gage Capitol Hill, and then be on location nearby, as determined by class and instructor.
