Plein Air Workshop with Ross Skoggard

Join local artist Ross Skoggard for 2 half-days of plein air painting! Some experience is necessary for this class.

Ross will lead a plein air workshop where he will introduce you to a technique that A.Y. Jackson taught Tom Thomson when they shared a studio in Toronto. It’s counter intuitive but works very well for small alla prima sketches in oil as well as for acrylic and pastel work. Come learn the secret!

There are no services at the pavilion, including benches or tables. Please bring your own chair, easel and/or table.

In case of rain, we will paint under the pavilion. You could also work from a photograph.

What to bring: Artists are welcome to work in the medium of your choice: acrylic, oil, pastel. Please bring all your own supplies including your own easel or paint box, chair and anything you will need to be comfortable. Download materials list below.
