10:00AM - 5:00PM. Ox-Bow School of Art. This workshop is for the plein air enthusiast looking to expand their repertoire and for those curious to start painting out-of-doors with watercolor and/or ink on paper. We will depart from the traditional plein air landscape to focus on the details of natural surfaces and textures. Then, we will engage in experimental mark-making by improvising “brushes” made from natural materials that we will gather on Ox-Bow’s campus. No experience is necessary. Experimental Painting En Plein Air runs Saturday, August 15, from 10am-5pm, taught by Nicole Mauser, and costs $100. 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)!
