                    Summer Day by Mary Byron


                    We will paint in York Village & York Harbor.
                    Classes will be outdoors on location. We start with a short discussion of the method I use while painting in plein air and a short demo of how I start a plein air painting. Students will receive individual attention at the easel.

                    We will discuss what we are seeing and focus on choosing a motif and designing a good painting. Thinking and planning ahead makes the painting process more enjoyable. We will learn and have fun! Midday there will be a lunch break. The afternoon will start with a review and discussion of the morning paintings. Depending on your experience you can expect to paint 1 - 3 small to medium sized paintings.

                    The “PLEIN AIR WARM UP” class is recommended for anyone interested in the one day plein air workshop especially if you are a beginner to plein air and would like to be more comfortable with the painting medium and experience.

This exhibit will be connected with an exhibit, sponsored by us at the same time in the Kennebunk Room in the York Public Library, of a collection of photographs taken by a young American soldier during the Korean Conflict.

                          "Gazing at Nympheas" by Dennis Perrin
                          Instructor: Dennis Perrin

                          Date: Saturday, June 20, 9-4 pm

                          Dennis Perrin can best be described as a painter of light as it illuminates and describes the subject. Mr. Perrin always chooses to paint in front of the subject, not content to settle for photography or video as painting material. Dennis has been called a painterly American Impressionist in the Boston School tradition, and that is not surprising since among his greatest influences are the American Painters John Singer Sargeant, Edmund Tarbell, and Frank Benson, as well as the French painter Henri Fantin-Latour. Other major influences have been Diego Velasquez, Johannes Vermeer, Thomas Dewing, Maxfield Parrish, Joseph DeCamp, and so many others. A former member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Mr. Perrin paints in order to express his great love for the beauty seen all around, especially in his immediate environment. Dennis studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art with M. Dell Weller, who taught him the power of seeing and translating that vision into paint. He continues his studies exploring the subtleties of light through paint. Among his favorite subjects are the human figure, clothed and nude, flowers, still life, and the interior space, often populated with one or more figures. Though not as frequently seen in his work, Perrin is an avid plein air painter of the New England landscape.
