Painting demos - 6/29/09

Martha Landry, Special Events Manager

As the organizer of public education programs, I wanted to plan events that evoked a sense of summer, of Santa Fe’s impressionist light & color and strong sense of place, while providing a casual hands-on experience.

At the museum this summer, I’m enjoying the paintings in American Impressionism. The sense of light & color, of a particular time & place in America, is wonderful. So...“Experience Santa Fe en plein air: Sunday Outdoor Painting Classes.”

Lee RommelThis is Lee Rommel in our central garden patio. Classes are taught here, amid the poppies and giant hollyhocks.  Lee has taught art classes and workshops in Santa Fe and the Southwest for the past 37 years and is a member of Plein Air Painters of New Mexico.  Students bring their favorite media...oil, water color, pastel, pencil. Lee teaches in all styles. 

We have had held two of our four scheduled classes.  Students range from the experienced to the novice, who share a spirit of adventure.  

Anyone who is interested can find more information about the classes.
