What you'll learn in this landscape painting class:

Award winning plein air artist Sharon Weaver, will show you the skills needed to transport the beauty of nature into an original landscape painting. Learn to create atmosphere in your work specific to landscape painting that brings them to life!  

All levels ok.

Have you wanted to paint the majesty of nature but where not sure where to start. This class will teach you how to capture the splendor of nature as we deconstruct the different elements of the landscape.
Learn how to paint a strong landscape by first picking a great photo reference. Understand the importance of composition as the foundation of your painting. The class will then follow the process of painting a landscape using simple shapes, mixing natural colors and understanding values to create atmosphere and distance in the landscape. 

Students will learn how to compose a successful painting with harmony, interest and drama. Learn about the fundamentals of composition and how to include a focal point in your painting.

Students will also learn how to create atmosphere specific to landscape painting. Learn to design your paintings, not just copy a photograph. You will gain the skills needed to transport the beauty of nature into an original landscape painting.

Each student will work at their own pace from photo references with at least one completed painting at the end of the class.

You must bring your Own Materials.

Important Notes:
  • No Turpentine is allowed in the studios because of the Fumes (odorless is okay)
  • Please have everything ready to go on the first day of class
  • The School does not sell any supplies. Most of the stores in the Area will give discounts to Kline Academy of Fine Art Students.

Note from the Instructor: 
Think lightweight and portable for supplies for this class and find creative ways to simplify. I try to pack everything below in a backpack, but depending on the accessibility of the site, I sometimes prefer to use a caddy with wheels. I get most of my supplies online.

Wood or disposable paper pallet works well. My easel has a built in palette and yours may too.
Assortment of bristle brushes (I suggest large #10 or #12, medium #6 or #8 and small #2 or #4 in Flats, Filberts or Round)
Canvas or linen mounted on board or gessoed wood panel (sizes can range from 6x6 to 11x14). Don’t use a stretched canvas. Sunlight can go through the back and distort colors and values.
I recommend a minimal palette of a warm and cool version of the three primaries plus white (with maybe a few extras) Student grade is cheaper but contains less pigment so the colors are chalky. If you can, spend the extra for professional grade paints. I use Winsor & Newton, Gamblin, and Holbein and there are many other good options.

Refund Policy
Students pre-pay all classes by the month. It is a commitment that is made by the student and The Kline Academy insures that your easel space will be held for you. If a student misses a class for whatever reason, and if a 24 hour notice was given to our office, as a courtesy, The Kline Academy welcomes students to come to another class, providing space is available and do a "make-up." "Make-ups" however are not "owed" to the student. Students may not save them up to pay for a month of classes or deduct them towards payment for classes. Make-ups are only honored as long as the student is enrolled in one of our classes. No Refunds. On special circumstances, we allow a pay-as-you-go for an increased rate of $65 per class ($65 for the figure painting). Most schools, universities, etc do not offer make-ups at all so we hope our policy will work for you. We are not able to offer refunds for any classes or workshops for any reason once they have been booked. If there are any changes made to enrollment please note a $75 administrative fee may be applied.

Question from Nicole F.
Hello. I am a beginner student. Should I purchase oil or acrylic paints for this class?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Nicole! Oil is preferred because the instructors work 100% in oils. Most of the art stores in the area will give students a discount if they mention that they are a student of Kline Academy of Fine Art. The school does not sell any supplies so it's important that students show up ready to go. Hope this helps!
