Learn to add vitality to your studio landscape paintings with John Lasater in this two-day class. Known for his string of awards in national competitions with a staggering variety of landscape subjects, John excels at pictorial concepts, open-form painting, naturalism, sophisticated color mixing and important design principles. With his years of painting and teaching experience, expect to be enlightened by his hands-on help and challenged by his lectures and demonstrations. Day One is held at Emergent Arts and John will do an indoor lecture and demonstration with exercises and a class practice followed by a critique. Day 2 will be the same format but held outdoors. Some of the teaching topics covered are:choosing a motif, ways to start and sustain a landscape painting, creating a sense of space, when and how to utilize atmospheric perspective, wet on wet painting, and using the tools. John will be using oil paints but students may use the painting medium they are comfortable with,

Megan, an Arkansas artist stated after taking a workshop taught by John, “Though I’m not a workshop junkie, I’ve been to enough workshops to realize that good painters are not necessarily good teachers. You are consistently good at both. I’m happy if I take away one or two useful concepts from a workshop, but I have learned a great deal more from you.”Doug from Ohio wrote, “As a relatively new painter and this being my first workshop, I was unsure of what to expect from the instructor. John’s positive direction and honest opinion will lead you to become a more confident artist. You will not realize how much John has taught until you get home is put a few paintings under your belt.”

John's artwork is in many private, corporate, and public collections as well a published in Southwest Art, Plein Air Magazine, and Art of the West Magazine. He is a Master Signature Member of Outdoor Painters Society, Signature Member of Laguna Plein Air painters Association, and a member of Oil Painters of America and American Impressionist Society. His paintings can be viewed at Justus Fine Art Gallery in Hot Springs and at https://lasaterart.com .
