Impressionist Workshop for Beginning Artists @ Weir Farm National Historic Site | Wilton | Connecticut | United States

Registration is now open for Weir Farm National Historic Site’s wildly popular Spring Impressionist Painting Workshops, taught by Impressionist artist and educator Dmitri Wright. These workshops will kick off the 2017 season, inviting artists to join in the tradition of painting en plein air at Weir Farm. The May workshop is an opportunity for beginning artists interested in learning more about the science and poetry of Impressionist landscape painting to take part in the ongoing artistic legacy of creating art inspired by Weir Farm’s stunning landscape. Participants are responsible for bringing their own supplies and must be able to handle their own equipment for field work. Workshops will include introductory classroom lectures, field demonstrations, and critique of the participant’s artwork. Registration is free, but space is limited, so please call early to secure a spot!

To register or for more information, please call 203-834-1896 ext. 11. Due to high demand for these workshops, registration is taken on first-call, first-serve basis with preference for new participants, and each artist may participate in only one spring workshop. Also, if you have friends interested in participating, please make sure they also call to register, as we cannot allow callers to register friends or guests due to the demand.
