Open Impressionism Workshop with Erin Hanson
Studios on the Park, Paso Robles
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
Studios on the Park is proud to offer an Open-Impressionism Workshop with Erin Hanson on Wednesday, September 19. Erin is an exciting young painter from Burbank who has pioneered the Open-Impressionism style. This new method of Impressionism features wider brush strokes and an impasto, alla prima technique. The texture of the paint takes on an extra-dimensional life of its own, directly capturing the emotion of the landscape on a visceral level.
This one-day workshop includes an in-studio session at Studios on the Park and a plein air session at the beautiful Peachy Canyon vineyards. It is suitable for intermediate to advanced painters and begins at 9 am and concludes at 7 pm. The fee is $150.
Erin’s strong and expressive Paso Robles landscapes will be the subject of a solo-show at Studios on the Park during the month of October. Erin Hanson: Colors of Paso will be a must-see exhibit for art collectors and nature lovers alike.
