What’s up with Trees?

December 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:15 pm

$50

Online Workshop with Uma Kelkar Saturday, December 4, 10am–12:15pm Pacific

We often undervalue ubiquitous features like trees in our practice, but it’s often these elements that hold our compositions together, make paintings feel real, and create mood and atmosphere.

With artist and engineer Uma Kelkar, we’ll start by painting individual trees in a fresh but realistic manner, followed by tree studies in warm and cool colors. We’ll finish the workshop by practicing tree motifs and ideas for incorporating them into your own compositions at home.

Uma says, “Come to enjoy the process. Stay for a new friendship with your tools.”

Saturday, December 4, 10am–12:15pm Pacific
