Painting Tactile Landscapes


Adults, Children

Despite their portrayal of deep forests, mountainsides, and ocean waves, most famous landscape paintings are essentially flat, deceiving the viewer with painted shadows and dots of color. Not so Vincent Van Gogh. He uses wide, thick swatches of paint, traceable by a fingertip (if, of course, we were allowed to touch them). In this workshop, participants, guided by guest artist Patrice Ising, will create their own imagined landscapes with paintings as knowable by touch as they are by sight. Free to the public, but registration is required. Call 899-2213 to register or email Best for adults and children aged 12 and up.
