November 2018: Texture, brushstroke and color in Monet’s painting

During three sessions, participants studied Monet’s texture, brushstroke and color from the water lily paintings, then used that inspiration to paint from a still life.

Students: Kate Miller and Mary Lostak.

Our next class features Matisse: his ink/brush drawings and the paintings they inspired. Starting on Monday, January 21st, 2019. Look for information here.
