In this Spring weekend workshop, we will paint outdoors on location. We will focus on ways to capture light and learn how to imbue that light into our painting making it visually exciting, moody or dramatic. This is a great class for artists to take their landscape paintings to a new level and paint what you are feeling about the scene.  This is a nuts and bolts class with lessons and demos that will give you solid knowledge about creating interesting landscapes.  For a $45 fee, Jackson Art can provide you with everything you need for the weekend workshop.

Finishing a Painting    March 23rd 2013  My studio.

It’s easy to start a painting but not always obvious when it’s complete and to know what the steps are to completion. This will explain how to assess your piece and then make a plan to bring it to fruition. This is the stage that will set your work apart from others. It’s left out of the equation by too many people.

Location: Sharon Vermont                         Dates: Mondays 9a.m.-1p.m. Beginning September 5th for twelve weeks

Our continual fascination with the beauty and mystery of the human figure has made figure
drawing a cornerstone of western civilization’s definition of art.
In this 12 week series, Peter Granucci presents a sequential approach to seeing the body
from the inside out while learning to draw it with a sense of living energy and dynamic flow.

The cost is $50 per participating artist per four-hour session (that’s $12.50 p/hr), plus cost of model estimated as $60 or $12 per artist (if five). Total cost per session is thus estimated to be $62 or $65.

  • Class Title: Practicing Plein Air Painting!                    
  • Class Description: The good news is, there are only a few weeks until summer! So let’s prepare by practicing Plein Aire painting inside, where it’s warm and dry. In this class you’ll work from projections and paint them as if you are on location. The logistics of being outside is a challenge unto itself, so you can, in the comfort of the studio, stay calm and focus on the painting process. I will teach and demonstrate various techniques for successful plein aire painting, focusing on developing clarity of intent and how to get it down quickly. This will help you when you are outdoors and the light is changing, you will be able to paint fast enough to capture it!  We will experiment and develop a method appropriate to each person’s aesthetic.
