Plein Air Painting with Marius Starkey

This event is expired.

Marius Starkey

Front Entrance of Museum

Claude Monet had a penchant for painting outdoors. While most of his contemporaries devoted their time to working in studios, Monet would spend days with his friends en plein air creating masterpieces. Along with this mode of working came a new style of Impressionist painting that captured the "dappled light" and beautiful landscapes of France with rapid composition and brushstrokes.

Marius Starkey will take us back to the high point of plein air painting by creating works in the style of Monet that respond to the sublime beauty of the light, sky, and trees around the museum. Visitors are welcome to draw alongside Marius while the fog drifts by.
