JANUARY MONTHLY PAINT-IN: "Landscapes with Spontaneity" with Robert Ruhmann
Class: 9:30-3:00 on Saturday, January 18, 2020
Come learn from Robert Ruhmann, a long time artist and teacher. He has taught at WASH the past several years and also taught art in public schools and at various art leagues. His specialty is landscapes and rocks. Robert is a member of the Brazosport Art League and has participated in the Rockport Art Show for 18+ years.
The focus of Robert’s Paint-in will be landscapes - composition, color, and painting techniques. He will start the class with a short brush technique exercise. He next will talk about how composition plays a key role in creating a successful painting. He will cover atmospheric perspective and how color plays an important role in perspective. The student will then pick out a photograph of Robert’s of a landscape to paint – or paint from one the student has brought. He will help each student plan his or her painting.

1. Photograph of a landscape that you would like to paint!
