Trips and Tours
Plein Air with Marjorie Glick
March 2-9, 2013
American towns don’t come more beautiful than Savannah, Georgia. The historic district, arranged around Spanish moss swathed gardens and squares, forms the core of the original city and boasts about every architectural style of the 18th and 19th centuries. The cobblestone waterfront on the Savannah River is edged by towering old cotton warehouses.
A painter’s delight!
We will take a trolley orientation tour on our first day and choose the places we would like to paint. There will be time to shop, explore the charming streets and squares, stroll along the riverfront and visit the Telfair Museum with its permanent collection of paintings, works onpaper, photography, sculpture, and decorative arts.
We will stay in a comfortable HAMPTON INN located in the historic downtown district with a full breakfast and within walking distance to all painting locations. The group is limited to 10to allow for personal attention and individual instruction.
While enjoying springtime in Savannah, you will capture the colors and vibrancy of the gardens, historic buildings, lovely squares and whatever else takes your fancy. The atmosphere and blooms make a perfect subject for watercolor.
Students will start the day with fast loose watercolor sketches and learn how to think like a painter and to develop ideas. The sketching is a springboard to clarity of ideas. You will focus on how to see and view the landscape as a series of shapes, light, shadow, and colors. You will learn how to quickly block in a scene from a painterly perspective.
Marjorie will show you how to find paintings in everyday scenes. Each day we will trolley or walk to our chosen location in downtown historic Savannah. Marjorie will do a demonstration, followed by students sketching with a series of guidelines. In the afternoons you will develop these sketches into finished watercolors. As you become more comfortable with the thought process, you will soon progress to quick color sketches and then begin painting earlier in the day.
7 nights hotel accommodation with full breakfast, first day orientation trolley tour, admission to Telfair Museum, and art instruction.
