with James Brandess

Saturdays: July 13, July 20, July 27, August 3

$60 each (can be taken individually or in multiples}

In these multi-level oil painting workshops, participants will paint outdoors in the historic Ox-Bow landscape. Students will study the relationships in size, shape, color, and value of elements in this natural environment. Instruction will focus on recognizing and then painting what we actually see. Through this process of learning to see, we will create paintings that have veracity and strength. The workshop will include discussion on the tools and materials needed to set-up and paint in any landscape you choose. Participants may sign up for one or all four of these three-hour morning painting workshops on the meadow alongside the lagoon. A supply list will be provided.


James Brandess is is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He maintains his studio in Saugatuck, MI, where he also conducts painting workshops for adults and children.
