ASHEBORO (May 28, 2019)
Randolph Community College is offering a “Painting the Landscape in Oils and Acrylic — Plein Air” course with professional artist and local historian Henry Bowers as the instructor, beginning Tuesday, June 4.
“Plein air” is a French term meaning “outside” or, in this case, painting outside. Students will be introduced to oil and acrylic painting in the great outdoors. Beginning and intermediate students will get the opportunity to try out painting methods while learning design, drawing, and color theory. Classes will be held on location at public sites around Randolph County.
Instructor Henry Bowers has been painting for his entire adult life. He has studied with several nationally-recognized painters including Ellena Basa and John Seerey-Lester. Bowers’ goal has been to save the ever-changing historical North Carolina landscape for future generations through his paintings. Bowers was recognized as the 2013 North Carolina Historian of the Year for his efforts in historical preservation.
The class (#70678) meets from 6-8 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 4-July 11. The first class is in room 122 of the Administration/Education Center on the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $70.55, and students must provide their own supplies.
