Latrobe Resdency Spring funded by The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art

Another wonderful and fulfilling residency at Latrobe High School.  This spring I conducted a 10 day painting workshop based on Impressionism and Expressionism  We follow a similar format where the first two days are spent on color mixing using Primary Colors.  Students are then encouraged to find an Impressionist print along with a partner to start their own painting ideas.  We talk alot about use of color, composition and brush or line stroke.  My own goal is not to replicate the work but have the students learn through the processes of mixing paint, painting upside down (not on their heads of course!) and a series of critiques culminates the 10 days.  Lots of fun, work and great results!
