Enjoy the opportunity to learn about watercolor while appreciating the beautiful surroundings of Rockefeller State Park Preserve.  This class will guide your observation of the landscapes and the process of capturing that impression with watercolor.  Artists of all levels will work on simplifying the scene into shapes, forms and color.  The trees, leaves, rocks and water will be studied and demonstrations will provide suggestions for techniques to try.  Your personal interpretation will be encouraged as we walk the property and select compositions to sketch.  The class will conclude with a shared critique of the work.  We will meet at Rockefeller’s Main Entrance gallery.  Please note: students should bring their own watercolors, paper taped to a board, brushes, water, cup and a stool or mat for sitting.  On inclement weather days, we will work inside of the gallery.

Henry James’s perceptiveness about American and British upper- and middle-class social and artistic life was unmatched by any other writer of his generation.  Evoking the colors and textures, the shapes and tastes, and the blend of physical and psychological impressions of the turn of the century, his fiction reflects a painterly sensibility deeply rooted in a life-long, often passionate, relationship with the visual arts. Henry James and American Painting (running June 9 through September 10, 2017) is the first museum exhibition to explore the fascinating intersection between James’s friendships with expatriate American artists, such as John La Farge, John Singer Sargent, and James McNeill Whistler, and his literary work.  Join us for the docent-led tour only ($50), or add an afternoon tea ($75).
