  • Chicago Botanic Gardens 1000 Lake Cook Rd Glencoe, IL 60022 United States (map)

In this two-day Summer Landscape Workshop, our inspiration will be the beautiful landscapes of the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Students will learn how painters from the Impressionist, Expressionist and Fauve movements thought about color in nature. The workshop will begin with a short review of color theory. After exploratory compositional sketches; students will begin painting utilizing techniques such as layering, optical mixture, broken brushstroke and glazing to create small paintings in the medium of their choice, including gouache, acrylic and oil.
