John Constable is one of the great British artists of the 19th century. He had a great depth of power and universality in his works. He is known today principally for revolutionizing the genre of landscape painting with his paintings of the area surrounding his home - now known as “Constable Country.” It seems like the whole universe itself is symbolically present in The Hay Wain. Using the various scenarios in this magnificent painting, students will be provided with a broad opportunity to find their own personal expression.

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!
