The Land Trust’s Art in Nature Series enables you to engage in workshops on painting, eco-dying, jewelry making, photography, climate storytelling, art quilting, basket weaving, creative writing and more while interacting with natural places and materials. Registration fees for programs offered through the Art in Nature Series benefit the presenting artist.
On Saturday, July 20, landscape artist Erin Spencer will offer a plein air workshop at St. Andrews Farm. Registration is limited to 10 people. You must provide your own easel and supplies. Artists of all skill levels are welcome, from the true beginner to the seasoned painter.
Erin, a landscape oil painter who lives in Barrington, has been documenting Rhode Island’s landscape for 16 years. Her work has been exhibited in the United States and Europe.
In this plein air workshop, participants will be painting outside from nature. Learn about simplifying the landscape with a focus on bigger shapes to build the composition of the painting. The workshop will begin with a demo from Erin, and then everyone will have time to set up their own easels to work on paintings. She will come around throughout the day to give feedback and instruction. She will be teaching and working in oils, but you are welcome to use any medium you prefer, from watercolor to acrylic, or even charcoal for sketching.
