Ages 17+ (Adult)
Pop-In Plein Air I
Various experts will lead students through the fundamentals of landscape painting while teaching plein air skills and techniques, and building confidence to paint outdoors. These drop-in sessions allow students to work with their own materials (in oils, acrylics, gouache, or watercolor). Instructors will be working in a variety of media. Each week’s focus will be posted on our website, but students are welcome to use any plein air media. For an additional fee, materials needed can be provided, limited to watercolor, pastel and pen & ink.
To kick off this class series, this week’s instructor is Kimball Art Center Exhibiting Artist Parker Jones.
Parker is an outdoor-focused illustrator and graphic designer, primarily based out of Park City, Utah. Initially trained as a landscape architect, his design style can be traced back to thousands of hours spent at the drafting table. Regularly drawing en plein air, his pieces are inspired by the landscapes, city scenes, and big rocks he’s come across while traveling. Through his sketchbooks, paintings, and hand-drawn collages he seeks to capture the subtly interconnected elements that create a sense of place.
