NYC Urban Sketchers, Saturday, August 26, 2023 10 AM to 1 PM
This Outdoor workshop is designed to pull you out of your comfort zone for exhilarating results. Here you will learn to:
● Trust your initial choices
● Make more deliberate choices of color and mark-making
● Discover bolder opportunities within your compositions. We will use bigger paper, a larger
brush and no pre-drawing. Experience a shift and expand your own style of painting!
The Workshop is sponsored by Strathmore Paper Co. Each participant will receive 2 large sheets of watercolor paper. More details about supplies, etc.will be provided upon sign up.
About the instructors: Susan Greenstein and Frieda Christofides have been painting on-site and side by side for many years.
Susan develops and teaches art courses for children and adults. She enjoys beginning her paintings without a preliminary sketch, which allows her to stay fresh and immediate (intuitive?) while she is working. Frieda had been an Urban Sketcher since a teen and never actually knew that's what it was called. She just loved painting outside. Together they will demonstrate their approaches to painting on a larger scale. They will point out the challenges and how to find solutions to overcome them.
Location: Central Park, South West corner at 59th Street, near the Maine Monument, right near Columbus Circle. We will then walk into the park and paint Greyshot Arch and Pinebank Arch.
