With Lisbeth Firmin & Richard Kathmann
Sponsored by Golden Artist Colors & Williamsburg Paints

Students ages 13 and up will benefit from the considerable skills of two well-known artists who live and paint in these hills. Participants of all levels (no prior painting experience necessary) will work outside, painting the vistas and the structures around The West Kortright Centre and The Centre itself.

Workshop exercises will begin with short studies in charcoal or black and white acrylic. Kathmann offers a way to see the landscape in black and white, and participants will create 5–10 studies each day. Then students move to an exploration of form using color with Firmin, working quickly with big brushes, and producing up to two paintings a day. There will be critiques throughout and a display and discussion at the end of each session.
