Joanne Burney "Interpreting Trees"
September 17, 2016
Denver metro area, TO BE ANNOUNCED
One day PSC workshop with Joanne Burney
September 17, 9:00-4:00
Cost: $90
Location: Denver metro area, TO BE ANNOUNCED
Deadline for registration: Sept. 8

Join local pastel artist, teacher and painter-of-trees extraordinaire, Joanne Burney for help interpreting this most attractive and challenging of subjects.

Trees are great subjects, whether presented alone or as part of a landscape. Connect with them artistically and use them to express your vision in drawings or paintings.

In this workshop we focus on trees in the landscape, going outdoors for a hands-on adventure into drawing and painting trees in an interpretive rather than botanical manner. You will learn to use artistic elements and media to highlight trees or incorporate them more effectively into the broader context of landscape painting.
