Take art classes near Fairfax homes.Several Fairfax homes will be adorned with new artwork after the owners attend the Landscape Workshop at Village Gallery. This event will take place on Saturday, June 11th from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and will be led by Fairfax Art League member Fritz Treyz. Bring along your favorite landscape or seascape photo to recreate, or choose from one at the workshop. Learn a simplified process of capturing and organizing the natural elements in a painting. The emphasis will be on viewing the landscape with an artist’s eye, to notice shapes, colors, and values, as well as light and shadows. The instructor firmly believes that the way an artist starts their painting is one of the most important aspects of the painting process, so participants should be prepared to spend some time on how to start.
