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.

Throughout time, women have been involved with art making in a variety of ways as artists, patrons, and collectors. In spite of the integral roles they have played, many women artists have not been included in the traditional narrative of art history, facing challenges due to gender biases and also difficulties in finding training and venues to exhibit and sell their work as a means to gain recognition.  In the beginning of the twentieth century, things began to change for female artists with social shifts towards equal rights encouraging them to address issues of identity in our own time.  Using the Met's collection, this guided tour will trace the evolution of female painters since the time of the Renaissance, exploring a number of women artists on view in the Met's European Paintings Galleries, the Nineteenth Century Wing and the Modern and Contemporary Galleries.  Images discussed will range from the Baroque period and the work of Artemisia Gentileschi and the painters of the ancien regime such as Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun and Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, to those of the female Impressionists Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot, and American women of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries including Georgia O'Keeffe and Susan Rothenberg.
