GEEVER ART – Summer 2017
At the Glenshaw Public Library

Skies and Silhouettes
 
Learn a different technique for painting the sky each week. After learning a painting technique for an individual sky, students complete their painting with a silhouette foreground that complements the painted sky. Painting techniques for the foreground silhouettes include mingling on the support, painting on damp paper, and collage.

Students need to bring reference photos and/or drawings of foregrounds that complement the mood set by the painted sky. For example a clear blue sky may be paired with a winter tree line or a beachhead or stormy sky may be paired with a cityscape or an isolated building. Also, bring a few discarded watercolor paintings you are willing to cut for a collage foreground silhouette.

Please bring your painting supplies to the first class.
