All supplies included in class fee.

Instructor: Kevin McCarty

In-person at VPC

Join us for a glimpse of Monet’s early painting style, a version of more natural, realistic colors of nature than the more colorful impressionistic version that we have come to know.  This painting represents nature almost purely in terms of chromatic color, with a flurry of white buds painted amid the subtle pastel shades of spring, presenting the viewer with a scene very evocative of this time of year because it’s how we perceive spring in a realistic fashion.  

Come to this class to learn and practice Monet’s early painting style with a more naturalistic lean tending toward Impressionism. Paint your own version of Monet’s Apple Trees in Bloom to take home and enjoy.

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!
