Expressive Landscapes in Acrylic
with Sarah Hansen


Thursday 6/8 – Saturday 6/10
10:00 – 4:00

Transformation Studio


In this three-day workshop, award-winning artist Sarah B. Hansen will teach techniques for painting expressive landscapes, guiding students to tap into their emotional response to the landscape and translate that response into a painting. This course will focus on simplifying landscape forms, selecting a limited color palette, and planning values, combining these and more techniques to create landscapes with expression. Students will create one or two works of art and several studies. Demonstrations will be in acrylic. Other paint mediums will be accepted; however, the focus will be on acrylic.

Please see the required Student Materials list here.
