WILTON, Conn. -- Weir Farm National Historic Site will be offering a two-day spring impressionist painting workshop from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday May 30 and Sunday, May 31.
Designed for Advanced and Intermediate art students and artists, this workshop will engage participants interested in learning more about the science and poetry of Impressionist landscape painting.
Participants must have a intermediate 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.
The How to be an Impressionist Painter Workshop Series will be taught by Impressionist artist and educator Dmitri Wright, of Greenwich. 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.
Workshops will include introductory classroom lectures, field demonstrations and critiques of the participant's artwork.
Registration for this workshop is free but space is limited to 12 artists so early registration is suggested. First choice will be given to artists that 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 for the workshop or for more information, call 203-834-1896, extension 28. This workshop is just one in a series that will be offered at Weir Farm National Historic Site.
