Here is the course title and description:


Traditional landscape painting using a layered approach.

Regardless of your level of experience, the goal of this workshop will be to provide you with a thorough introduction to traditional landscape painting. In this workshop, we will attempt to place ourselves in the mindset of the great Landscape Painters of the past.  Students will discover a deeper understanding of how these old masters approached plein-air painting, how they composed the complexity of nature before them, and how they used a layered approach to greater capture qualities of space, and form in the landscape.


Dates: July 21st  to 24th

Tuition: 500

One of the over riding messages from our show (as illustrated in this historic map) was that the White Mountains are not just in New Hampshire they extend well  into Maine.

“Pictures serene and sublime” New Exhibit of Lauren Sansaricq and Erik Koeppel’s work!

Pictures Serene and Sublime: Traditional White Mountain Art Recaptured

July 6 through August 31, 2013
— Mason House

During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, numerous artists (including many from the so-called Hudson River School) captured the awe-inspiring summits and verdant glens in the White Mountain region of northern New Hampshire and western Maine.  Including many of these early landscapes, this exhibit also highlights the work of Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq, nationally-recognized plein air artists who create masterful works in the Hudson River style based on their love for the expressive potentials of traditional representation.  The eight-week exhibition will feature a variety of White Mountain landscapes, including several from the collection of the Jackson (NH) Historical Society.  The contemporary works by artists Koeppel and Sansaricq will be available for purchase.  (All sales will benefit the Bethel Historical Society.)
Opening on Saturday July 6 at the Bethel Main Historical Society’s Museum.
All Are Welcome!
