Register today for May 1-5, 2013
This is a rare opportunity to study impressionist landscape painting with Mary Giammarino in the tradition of the cape school at a location in western Mass. The cape school was founded over 100 years ago by Charles Hawthorne and is still in operation in Provincetown, MA. The focus of the cape school is color, how do you translate light and see the differences between a sunny and cloudy day? Painting out of doors requires knowledge and skill. With a limited color palette, a putty knife, and concentrating on “masses” you will work quickly to “study” NATURE, and to interpret it onto canvas. No matter what level painter you are, this class will dramatically improve your ability to manage color. You will take away tools for a lifetime of exploration in paint!
