Landscape Painting Classes

Whether painting outside or seated at the easel, my landscape painting classes offer students the opportunity to work with charcoal and pencil, oil and acrylic paint, to hone the rendering skills needed to accurately represent the world around us.

Drawing

Students draw outdoors at the scenic Cooper River Park overlooking the sailboats of the Yacht club yard. We'll first design a value thumbnail and use that design to complete an 8x8" charcoal on tinted Strathmore paper. Comparative measurement, value exercises, and creation of mood will be discussed. 

Materials provided, simply bring a chair and your sense of adventure! TWO-day workshop | 2 hours each day

Sundays, October 17th and 24th: $60  SIGN UP

Acrylic Painting

This class overlooks the sailboat yard at Cooper River Yacht club. We'll design a thumbnail value study and use that as a base to develop a one-session acrylic painting. Value, composition, and color mixing will be discussed. 

All materials are provided so simply bring a chair, a small stool for your supplies, and a sense of adventure!

Education Philosophy

Jenny teaches process-oriented art classes to both children and adults. She values the development of students’ ideas and sense of community just as much as the final product. As a student of art history, Jenny often uses reproductions of artwork to introduce concepts, build dialogue between classmates and assess the level of each student. Jenny gains great pleasure in meeting each student at her level, introducing new techniques and guiding a pathway to success.
