Abstract Landscape Painting

In this off-site, socially distanced landscape class, students will be engaging with familiar and accessible sites within the Philadelphia area. Locations such as the Center City Museum area and Manayunk will be explored. Working small and with oils, the sessions will be fast-paced utilizing quick sketches and bold painting snapshots for future painting ideas or ends in themselves.

Please note: This is a 6-session workshop. Fleisher will be closed on Monday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day, and class will conclude on Monday, August 1.

This is an in-person, off-site course. The instructor will be in touch with you via email to announce the meeting locations. We will practice social distancing during class.
