ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
May is one of the most beautiful months in the Catskills–an ideal time for the artist to create indoor floral arrangements or work en plein air. This workshop will combine both approaches. Students will be instructed in the art of painting floral still lifes, as well as the compelling charm of budding trees and seasonal blossoms, which are abundant in the area at this time of year. An emphasis will be placed on composition and texture, incorporating the instructor’s grisaille method of creating an initial arrangement.
This is an outdoor class, please dress accordingly.
All levels are welcome.
