ASHEBORO (June 27, 2019)
The green trees at sunset reflected in the waters of Lake Lucas can be breathtaking. Learn to capture them on canvas in Randolph Community College’s “Painting the Landscape in Oils and Acrylic — Plein Air with Henry Bowers” course, which begins July 16.
“Plein air” is a French term meaning outside, or in this case, painting outside. Beginning and intermediate students will get the opportunity to try out painting methods while learning design, drawing, and color theory.
Bowers, who was recognized as the 2013 North Carolina Historian of the Year for his efforts in historical preservation, 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 is to save the ever-changing historical North Carolina landscape for future generations through his paintings.
Classes will be held on location at public sites around Randolph County. Students will need to furnish their own supplies.
The class (#70844) meets from 6-8 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, July 16-Aug. 15. On rainy days, the class will meet in room 122 of the Administration/Education Center on the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $70.55.
