Join landscape painter extraordinaire Joe Sweeney on location at historic Laurel Hill Mansion for this two-day workshop. Built in 1767, and nestled along the scenic Schuylkill River in Fairmount Park, Laurel Hill has a prominent location on a high bluff with a commanding view of the river. Joe Sweeney will paint along with you in these idyllic and historic surroundings, guiding you through color mixing to capture the tonal quality and character of the time of day, compositional fundamentals, and sound painting practices. Instruction is geared towards oil, acrylic, and pastel, but experienced watercolorists are welcome. Restrooms and plenty of free parking available.
This workshop is made possible by special invitation from the The Women For Greater Philadelphia, the stewards of Laurel Hill Mansion.
