Project Description

Plein Air & Still Life Painting with Oscar Peterson

Artists have been painting en plein air (outdoors) for hundreds of years.  Students will continue in this tradition and learn the techniques to start, establish, and finish their paintings en plein air.  Fundamental principles of capturing color, light, planes, and structure will be covered.  Still life subjects will be introduced in the case of inclement weather and/or to practice painting from observation.


Please Note:  This class will meet at various, picturesque locations throughout the 10 weeks, including the Historic Dvoor Farm in Flemington, NJ. Click HERE for Information about Dvoor Farm. The first class on September 13 will be held at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton.
