Ridgewood Art Institute to Offer Plein Air Essentials

Posted: Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Any interest in painting outdoors?

C.A. Jerez, longtime member of The Ridgewood Art Institute and instructor of our Monday nite Oil Painting Class, will give a lecture on Plein Air Essentials.
Mr. Jerez was a disciple of the famous Art Students League instructor, Frank Vincent Dumond. In his work Mr. Jerez is able to capture the life of the subject by identifying the essential components of an object or scene and depicting them in the most simplistic manner to convey complete realism without neglecting the artistic elements of form and strong composition. He uses prismatic color and light to create a sense of distance and drama while capturing the weather conditions and specific time of day.

Admission for this event is a $5 donation to The Ridgewood Art Institute and all are welcome.
