Ever wonder how painters captured those moonlight paintings? Night painting was a favorite of Impressionist painters of Weir’s time and still is today. Artists are invited to continue the tradition and take part in a new workshop hosted by Weir Farm National Historic Site. Taught by Impressionist artist and master instructor Dmitri Wright, this workshop will feature plein air painting during the latter part of the day and early part of the night. Wright will lecture and demonstrate how to capture inspired moments between sunset and sunrise from an impressionist’s perspective. Participants must have a basic understanding of their selected art form and be able to handle their own equipment for plein air fieldwork, as well as for the studio workshop environment.

Registration opens approximately 3-4 weeks before the workshop, following an e-flyer release sent to the park’s mailing list. The park will not accept registration until the e-flyer is sent out, which includes information on how to register.  To be added to the mailing list to be notified of registration and other park programs, please send an email to [email protected] to be added.
