THURSDAY, JUNE 21ST – SUNDAY, JUNE 24TH • PAINTING IN THE GARDEN CLASS WITH SEVERIN HAINES
The Museum is delighted to offer a four-day adult painting class with local artist Severin Haines, timed to coincide with peak bloom in the RJD’s full city block of gardens. The program is designed to accommodate a range of artistic experience working with oil, acrylic, watercolor or pastel. The program is six hours a day and offers a unique and concentrated learning experience, which combines one-on-one instruction with Mr. Haines each day, painting in the garden, and a shared art experience as participants gather each day for lunch to critique their progress. The program begins with an illustrated history of garden painting with the work of noted artists such as Monet, Vuillard, and Childe Hassam, to the work of the contemporary landscape artists of today. Severin Haines, a graduate of the Swain School of Design and Yale University’s School of Art and Architecture is Professor Emeritus at UMASS Dartmouth. He has exhibited in numerous galleries and one-person shows. A suggested list of materials and supplies will be provided before the class begins. The program fee is $250 per student.
