Using pre-determined locations throughout NYC, students will create paintings in oil and studies on the spot in plein air during the early evening creating dynamic nocturnal urban compositions. Locations will be chosen to advance the skills related to color, atmosphere and movement as well as direct responses to the changing urban lights that is intrinsically New York. This challenging workshop will stretch any skilled artist and student towards increased confi dence and the abandonment of preconceived notions, ultimately fast tracking growth. Demonstrations by Garin Baker at each site as well as individual instruction will be offered.
