Learn the basics of painting a landscape using oil paints on canvas in this two-day workshop with local artist Ari Ferro.

Working from a selection of favorite photos you supply, you will learn elements of composition, center of interest, how to lead the eye into the composition, and relative values in the photo.

You will progress through a charcoal sketch, and to a preliminary and then a final painting, learning about color theory, values and mixing; areal perspective; and modeling of depicted objects to create a 3-D quality.
