Hi Workshop Participants,

I'm looking forward to a great Impressionism Workshop!  Our main focus will be on color - how
to see it and how to mix it - to create a beautiful sense of light in your work.  On the first day
we will begin by painting simple still life set-ups, learning fundamental color relationships.   
Then we will apply what we've learned to the portrait/figure on day two, followed by the
landscape on the last day.   The class is geared towards all levels of ability - with an easy to
follow approach.   We will be working primarily with a palette knife on gessoed "masonite"
panels.   Below is a list of materials that I recommend.  If you do not have everything, please
bring what you have.  There will be an "Artsupplies2you" art-mobile on hand where supplies
may be purchased for those items you don't have.  

We will be painting outside, on location, and I recommend a sturdy easel.  If you're able to, I
recommend  standing at the easel and using a hand-held palette.  However if you have a Julian-
style "sketch box easel", you can set a palette across the drawer.  If you have any questions,
please feel free to email or call me: johnebersberger@verizon.net and cell phone, (410) 533-
1803.

Thanks!  See you at the workshop,
John

"To combine the efforts of North Carolina visual artists, community leaders and the general
public in an annual, one week long event to include a Plein Air Workshop  taught by a
leading, nationally recognized Plein Air painter, and a two day “Plein Air Paint Out”,
featuring numerous sites in Rowan County.
The event will provide opportunities for aspiring young and interested adult painters to work
alongside the region’s most successful working artists.
Plein air painting, translated “painting in the open air”, is, by its very nature, highly visible
and generates public interest. The result is a heightened respect for original,
representational art and a greater awareness of the beauty that is our home."
