Chris Groves will be in beautiful Black Mountain to teach his approach to landscape. A master at color, value, and composition, Grove imparts a wealth of information to his students.

This class will include discussions on materials, palette, and composition. Techniques of drawing along with preliminary charcoal sketches, value and color studies, and fundamentals of color mixing will be covered. A classical approach of monochromatic under-painting, directed observation and application of color, followed by glazing techniques will be discussed. The class will consist of lectures, slide analysis, and individual critiques, while the student paints his or her own landscape. Optional evening painting sessions, en plein air, after 5:00.
