Class Description: Lois Griffel’s workshops are based on her books, Painting the Impressionist Landscape and Painting Impressionist Color. The workshop focuses on interpreting light effects of nature into color. Emphasis is on color perception, control of masses and values, and attention to design and composition. Using an Impressionist color palette, Lois guides students to free themselves from old habits while encouraging greater visual awareness. This workshop is informal and fun, but be prepared to learn a lot and work hard too!
About the Instructor: Lois studied classical painting at the NYC Art Students League with Raymond Kinstler, Burton Silverman and Harvey Dinnerstein before moving to Provincetown, MA. She became close friends with Henry Hensche, a protégé of Charles Hawthorne. Hawthorne opened the Cape Cod School of Art in 1899, renowned for its dedication to Impressionism. Griffel’s paintings combine classical tradition and Impressionism. As the third director of the school, she expanded the color principles of her predecessors as presented in her books, Painting the Impressionist Landscape and Painting Impressionist Color. Her paintings have twice graced the cover of American Artist Magazine and many others. To learn more about Lois Griffel, please visit her website at Loisgriffel.com
