Learn to paint the landscape using Acrylic Paint

Ellen Jean Diederich  is offering a 4 day workshop April 24-27, 2018 

Class is from 9:00AM to 3:30PM with a one hour lunch each day.


Day 1 – The Source of Light We will warm up painting colored boxes and basic landscape shapes showing a light source. Then we will make up an imaginary landscape. With these lessons we will go over mixing color and adjusting values. Exercises are on watercolor paper.

Day 2 – Windows and Shadows  Bring a picture of a window or buildings with windows, or use provided examples.   We will work with perspective and use value and color mixing techniques on a small canvas.

Day 3 & 4 – Create your own Landscape. Bring photos (not photos of paintings) of a variety of landscape subjects you would like to paint. We will compose and paint a landscape with some architecture on a larger canvas or watercolor paper. I also will bring photocopies of the same subject matter I’m working on if you would prefer to do that.

The workshop is Tuesday- Friday April 24-27 2018 and will be held at the Holiday Inn in Fargo on the NW corner of I-94 and 13th Avenue.  Each student will get their own 6 foot table to work on and can leave their supplies there overnight. Lunch will be available at the restaurant at the Holiday Inn or at any nearby restaurant.  Workshop price is $225.00. Make a down payment of $75.00 today!
