Designed for beginners and advanced alike, this workshop challenges students to develop their own master copy of floral studies created by 19th century artists Monet, Van Gogh, Cassatt and other fellow Impressionists. Employing a direct and loose manner in mark making, students will make an impression through their study and within the same breath, grasp a stronger understanding in principles of design, color theory, and composition. Students may choose to interpret their master copy in a wide range of media, including oil, acrylic, as well as pastel.
