WILTON, Conn. – The Weir Farm National Historic Site will be offering a two-day fall impressionist painting workshop Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 3 and Oct. 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Designed for beginning art students and artists, the 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.
The workshop is 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 critique of the participant’s artwork. Registration is free, but space is limited to 12 artists. 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 ext. 28.
