Meadows with Poplars, 1875, by Claude Monet

Saturday, April 8, 12 pm-4 pm / $89 / One Class 

Location: Victory Parkway Campus

Instructor: Kevin McCarty

Claude Monet is one of the most loved Impressionist painters. His technique of capturing the effects of sunlight in landscape paintings are still widely admired.  Meadow with Poplars is Monet hitting his stride in the 1870’s, creating what we have come to recognize as the Impressionistic style. In this painting, small paint strokes are laid down to suggest light, mirroring and anticipating the idea of particles of light in quantum mechanics.

Learn the basics of mixing color, composition and the differentiation of shapes, and produce your own creative response to a Monet painting on a canvas. Utilizing the overall spontaneous approach of Claude Monet, we will create a personalized, simplified image of a Claude Monet painting.

You will receive one gallery-wrapped, stretched 11 x 14” fine art canvas, a set of brushes, and a full set of acrylic paints in a wide spectrum of colors, at no extra cost. Take home your own original piece of art ready for framing.
