Rancho Mirage, California
Past Event

Painting from life in a beautiful outdoor setting can be both exhilarating and challenging. In this workshop, landscape painter Jessica Schiffman will introduce her step-by-step method to help simplify and organize what is seen and capture rapidly changing light and shadows. Some painting experience is recommended.
Materials: Students should bring the materials they are familiar with using. However, the instructor includes a Materials list.

Instructor: Jessica Schiffman's oil paintings are focused on both the landscape and the human figure in motion. A full-time artist for over two decades, her background also includes illustrations for sixteen children's books, and recently, two murals.
