ATTENTION: Due to COVID19 and community safety concerns, until further notice, most classes and workshops are VIRTUAL, using Zoom as the live, online platform where you will see the demo in full screen mode. Zoom classes have been successful and feedback has been very positive. Exceptions to VIRTUAL classes are my plein air workshops for 2022 and 2023; please SEE THE SCHEDULE for updates.

“WATERCOLOR UNLEASHED – A LANDSCAPE OF CLIFFS, ROCKS & BOULDERS” –
Live Zoom online class with Scottsdale Artists’ School and Julie Gilbert Pollard
Dates & Times: June 7 – July 12, 2022, 6 Tuesday classes, 1PM – 4PM
Details: ROCKS, PEBBLES, BOULDERS, CLIFFS: the “bedrock” of landscape painting. Creating the shapes and depth of individual rocks and rocky outcroppings, learning to combine many rocks and pebbles into a single collective shape that says “rock” without detailing each is crucial to successful landscape painting. This class will focus on the challenge of painting a landscape in which rocks, boulders and cliffs are a significant feature.
A photo will be provided for your use, but you are always welcome and encouraged to paint from your own reference material whenever you wish.
There will be demos, instruction and individual critique throughout the Zoom class. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting!
