Papa Cézanne's Composition and Color: Plein Air & Studio

Drop-ins Welcome

Paul Cézanne is known as the father of modern art for a reason. When artists at the turn of the 20th  century saw what he’d been working on in the south of France, it inspired artists of all kinds. So much of painting even today can be traced to Cézanne’s influence.

In this course, students will look closely at his composition. It will influence work in important ways. Over 12 weeks students will learn and practice Cézanne’s methods of constructing a composition through distortion, movement, color and integration of the picture plane. 

Weather permitting, students will spend the first half of the term outside painting plein air and the second half of the term in the upstairs classroom at OSA. Studio demos and lectures will be recorded and offered as a live virtual class to accomodate students wishing to not be indoors with others. Classroom sessions will require appropriate social distancing and facemasks.

Drop ins are allowed but classes will be consecutive, making it challenging for drop in students later in the term. Please direct all questions to Jef Gunn at zopa@hevanet.com
