We will be Starting Sunday night at 8pm with introductions and working until Friday 4pm. Using Unicamp and environs as our inspiration with its picturesque vistas, mossy craggy caves, dappled ponds, rolling hills, fantastic forests and expansive skies. We will explore the perfect location and capture the light of morning, afternoon, dusk and sunset. In three sessions a day create a series of works in your media of choice with on location drawing and painting. Go off on your own, or stick with the camaraderie of the group.  Be introduced to a variety of techniques and strategies to create interesting composition. Lauren will also offer opportunities for you in watercolour pencils, ink, pastels in chalk or oil and demonstrations in how to use these materials which she will provide. Use colour theory to create depth. Learn about the close view with single objects and the long view using panoramic skies and hills.
