Abstract Landscapes (five-session workshop)

In this on-site, socially distanced landscape class, students will be engaging with familiar and accessible sites within the Philadelphia area. Locations such as the Center City and Manayunk will be explored. Working small and with oils, the sessions will be fast-paced utilizing quick sketches and bold painting snapshots for future painting ideas or ends in themselves.

Special notes:
This is an in-person, off-site workshop. We will practice social distancing during class.
