On Saturday, September 29th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This workshop is designed for beginning art students and artists interested in learning more about the science and poetry of Impressionist landscape painting. Participants must have a basic understanding of their selected art form and be able to handle their own equipment for plein air fieldwork as well as for the studio workshop environment. Workshops will include introductory classroom lectures, field demonstrations, and critique of the participant's artwork. Registration for this workshop is free, but space is limited to twelve artists, so please call early to secure a spot! First choice will be given to artists who have not participated in a previous Impressionist Painting Workshop at Weir Farm National Historic Site. However, for those artists who wish to return, names will be placed on a wait-list and be considered as space allows. To register or for more information, please call (203) 834-1896 ext.28. This workshop is just one in a series that will be offered at Weir Farm National Historic Site. The How to be an Impressionist Painter Workshop Series will be taught by Impressionist artist and educator Dmitri Wright, of Greenwich, Connecticut. Mr. Wright seeks to continue the Impressionist discipline through his preservation and progress of American Impressionism as the artist-in-residence of the Historical Society of the Town of Greenwich and as an instructor of Impressionist drawing and painting at the Greenwich Art Society, Silvermine School of Art, and Weir Farm National Historic Site.
