Weir Farm National Historic Site, the home of American Impressionism pioneer Julian Alden Weir, will offer a two-day Fall Impressionist Painting Workshop on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 3-4, from 10 to 3. It will be taught by Dmitri Wright, artist in residence of the Historical Society of the Town of Greenwich.
Designed for beginning 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 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 artwork. Registration is free, but space is limited to 12 artists. First choice will be given to those who have not participated in a previous Impressionist painting workshop at Weir Farm. Returning artists will be placed on a wait-list and considered as space allows.
