"Plein Air Workshop" At the Duxbury Art Association Thursday & Friday June 7 & 8

Plein Air Workshop With Sergio Roffo
Paint with ASMA“Fellow” Sergio Roffo along our stunning coastlal landscape, Alla Prima approach.

Please Join me for an exciting 2 day workshop in Duxbury Ma. at the Duxbury Art Association.

Sergio will focus on the techniques and principles of Plein air painting of coastal marine landscapes. Sergio Roffo is an elected “Fellow” of the American Society of marine Artists, a member of the Guild of Boston artists', and a Copley Master at the Copley Society of Boston.
Mr. Roffo has won countless national awards and is widely collected.

Each morning will begin with Sergio discussing the aesthetic issues and
techniques of art as he demonstrates and completes a field study, encouraging the fellow artists to observe. “ Sometimes you learn more by observing and memorizing than actually painting. While I strongly
encourage the students to observe my demonstration, they will have to option to paint along side of me.” After the demonstration students will receive individual personal instruction and encouragement while completing their painting “Alla Prima” (in one sitting).
The objective of this two day coarse is to sensitize the class to the aspects of outdoor painting, including:

* Learning how to see nature’s details
* Understanding the interplay of light and shadow
* Knowing how to mix the right colors
* Eliminating the fear of outdoor painting
Material List will be available
Open to All Levels in Oils Only.
