Feeling Alive – The Authentic Impressionist Method

Srishti Wilhelm, Instructor

Saturday, August 21, 2021 | 9 am to 4 pm

Mountain Artists Guild, 228 N. Alarcon, Prescott

To stand in front of nature, to respond to the visual sensations of line and color using a method that was passed down from the French Impressionists. This method was used by Monet, Sargent, Henri and Olinski and passed down through generations of teacher-students and now I am pleased to bring this to you. 

This class is not about making products but it’s about a process of feeling alive. It’s about developing a visual language so that we can organize our visual experience into distinct sensual pieces that we can respond to, play with, and ultimately reintegrate on the canvas. We stay in the state of enchantment and we work from life. 

We will work with still-life setups indoors and learn the process step-by-step with further tips on how to take it outdoors for doing plein air paintings. Artists at any level of experience are welcome. Oils are preferred, acrylics acceptable. We will use a full array of prismatic colors to  convey our impressions  in full color.
