Landscape painter Sarah McCoubrey, a full professor at Syracuse University, will lead this two-week class in plein air painting. Participants will discover the transformational experience of painting the unique color and light of the Umbrian landscape. McCoubrey will encourage students to practice close observation of color and specifics of light while also offering insights from her 25 years of teaching painting and drawing in the School of Art. Inspired by the beauty and richness of Assisi, its art and its history, participants’ own artistic practice will be nourished.
