This class will focus on creating art related to the landscape of the Black River Watershed. It is open to students with any level of experience with art. The class will employ a combination of on-site art making, discussion, individual meetings and group critiques to facilitate the understanding and the practice of making landscape art. We will focus primarily on the activities of drawing and painting. Specifically we will spend time painting and sketching in the field. We will attempt to organize our work around salient features of the local landscape wit brief field trips in the Black River Valley and Lake Memphremagog.
