Night painting was a favorite of Impressionist painters of Weir's time and still is today. Artists are invited to continue the tradition and take part in a new workshop hosted by Weir Farm National Historic Site. Taught by Impressionist artist and master instructor Dmitri Wright, this workshop will feature plein air painting during the latter part of the day and early part of the night. Wright will lecture and demonstrate how to capture inspired moments between sunset and sunrise from an impressionist's perspective. Participants should bring their own supplies, have a basic understanding of their selected art form, and must be able to handle their own equipment for plein air fieldwork as well as for the studio workshop environment. The park has some watercolor supplies available for beginners upon request.
