10 August - 28 August 2020


We invite you to participate in the Plein-air course in a gorgeous authentic Italian location - Cineto Romano. This little town is located in the mountains - a perfect place to escape the heat of August! Read about the history of the place below. 


The students of this course may choose a technique for their Plein-air practice between two options: oil painting or watercolor.



Space, air, fog, dew, and plant life, soft and incandescent luminescence - all afford this beautiful medium a chance to gently touch paper surface allowing it to remain veiled by the artist's brush and shine through simultaneously. Plein air watercolor is an exploration and adventure, especially when together with you we will attempt to paint the virgin beauty of Italian mornings, afternoons and sunsets.


Oil Painting

The students will learn about the rules of perspective, proportions and “clean” palette. This course enhances the understanding of cold and warm colors, creating beautiful color transitions. In the condition of fast-changing light, the student learns to react quickly to the change of colors and tones and convey those colors accordingly.
