Absorb the landscape as subject matter via Plein Air in the Adirondacks!

BluSeed Studios Creative Classroom Projects will be holding an Art Integration/ Plein Air Painting Seminar on September 30th from 8:30 am-4: 30pm. Professor Peter Russom will use the Adirondack Mountains as a backdrop, to develop new ways to see, experience and compose a landscape painting.  This workshop is designed for K-12 art and content educators teachers who would like to integrate art and core standards together but open to all who are interested!

Join in on a day of observational drawing/painting with a focus on color. This workshop will combine the theoretical, observational, and expressive components of color. Special liquefying techniques with oil pastels, watercolor and then charcoal will be taught as well. Participants will learn to work representational or abstractly.  Since this depends on the weather, both still life and photographic sources will be ready as well. Participants will do several studies with different media and surfaces that explore color, and then chose one piece to work on later on Saturday. 

Peter Russom is a Professor of Art at Plattsburgh State University.  He states, “I work directly from the landscape in my drawings and watercolors; these pieces also function as research material for larger, more complex acrylic paintings. My most recent works are a synthesis of images, forms, and geometric systems suspended in fields of color. The structure and relationship between the various formal elements act on the viewer’s eye and initiate my communication with the viewer.  To learn more about Professor Russom visit: https://web.plattsburgh.edu/academics/art/faculty/russom.php  or his gallery http://www.peterussom.com/#/home
