You can paint impressionist landscapes! 

Impressionism is one the most beloved styles of painting. It’s playful, passionate, and just plain fun! Toaa  Dallo will explain and demonstrate the impressionist approach to painting. We will use time-honored methods to explore the key issues of composition and color, structure and brushwork, style and storytelling  — with an emphasis on fun. 

Students will learn about concepts and techniques through brief guided exercises, including small-scale  studies, and will then apply these lessons in extended sessions, using their preferred medium. Toaa will  provide lots of interesting images to choose from, but students are encouraged to bring pictures of their own  to paint. In the final sessions, students will focus on one or two paintings, developing them to completion.  Toaa will be painting along with the group, demonstrating and encapsulating the lessons for each session.  And everyone will be invited to share their work with the group, for a friendly session of feedback and  constructive critiquing.
