Students will work in the studio creating from either their own or provided reference photos. Each week will focus on a different spring migratory bird. Part I will focus on bluebirds, goldfinches, warblers, and orioles. Knoth will demonstrate exercises and painting techniques such as sumie style calligraphy, working with washes, creating textures with wet-in-wet and drybrush, direct painting, and using negative spaces to create shapes. Students will learn skills of observation and expression that will enhance their future study and enjoyment of birds.
