Painting the Impressionist Landscape – VIRTUAL

$60 Museum Members, $70 non-members

MARCH 20—Saturday, 1–5pm
Registration deadline: March 18

In this virtual workshop, learn how to see and paint like the Impressionists! Discuss historic Impressionism and how it endures today before creating your own work based on photographs of the local area. Learn about and practice optical blending, color temperature, ways to convey light and shadow, and paint application. Some prior painting experience is helpful but not required; students may work in acrylics or oils, but instructor uses acrylics for demos.
