Impressionist Painting (June 7, 12:30-2:30pm) (Class is Full)
Allison Zito
Artist and Teacher

Vibrance and energy shimmer on the canvas of the impressionist painter. Working in an intuitive manner, they captured in color and rhythm the spontaneity of the moment. It was a time of change, a time of new ideas and innovation. These innovations took the impressionists outdoors to paint in the open air. The impressionist artists developed a kind of painterly short hand, using visible brush strokes to recreate the fleeting qualities of light as it danced across the natural world. In this class, we will discuss the impressionist artists. Everyone will be encouraged to develop their own personal intuitive style of painting. Like the impressionists, we will paint in the open air, with the breathtaking gardens of the Morris Arboretum as our own personal Giverny. (In the event of inclement weather we will paint indoors, from great works of the Impressionists.) Come to class dressed to paint. All supplies are provided.
