10:00AM - 1:00PM. Ox-Bow School of Art. In these multi-level oil painting workshops, participants will paint outdoors in the historic Ox-Bow landscape. Instruction will focus on recognizing and then painting what we actually see. Through this process of learning to see, we will create paintings that have veracity and strength. The workshop will include discussion on the tools and materials needed to set-up and paint in any landscape you choose. Participants may sign up for one or all four of these three-hour morning painting workshops on the meadow alongside the lagoon. Landscape Painting runs for four days on July 18, 25, August 1, and 8th from 10am-1PM each day, taught by James Brandess, and costs $60 per day. Art on the Meadow is a unique program, providing an intergenerational space for students to come together in the inspiring natural environment at Ox-Bow for half day, one day, or short term multi-day classes. Our workshops are geared toward teen and adult makers of all experience levels, age 13 and up. Art on the Meadow workshops offer participants an opportunity to connect traditional art and craft processes with contemporary ideas and approaches to artmaking. We strive for our workshops to be imaginatively challenging and logistically accessible for our West Michigan neighbors. Come jump into Ox-Bow’s creative community (and maybe even into our beautiful lagoon)!
