The inspiration for this course is the writing of 18th century French painter P. H. Valenciennes. In his famous treatise on open air painting published in 1800 Valenciennes advocated the separate study of the individual “elements” of landscape.

Elements is organized around morning slide shows focusing on one element of landscape: fields, trees, clouds and skies, water, time and nocturnes. Daily presentations will be followed by painting sessions dedicated to the subject element.  No formal technical instruction is offered but two instructors will be available to work with participants individually. Daily reviews of work. Fees include most materials, surfaces, easels & equipment, all meals, accommodation, field trips, local transportation. 12 student maximum. Rain or shine. Call 212-780-3216
