Outdoor Watercolor Workshop:
Painting along the Hudson in Riverside Park
June 25–29
Monday – Friday, 8:45 am – 12:30 pm
Fee: $400
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 15 students

Come and enjoy the beautiful light of early summer along the Hudson River in Riverside Park. Ample tables and benches, as well as access to water fountains, bathrooms and refreshments, make this a comfortable and picturesque location for watercolor painting. Working on-site, each day will include both lectures and demonstrations on a variety of landscape elements, including sky techniques, tree anatomy and architectural rendering.

The subtle nuances and expressive flexibility of watercolor make it an ideal medium for landscape and cityscape subject matter. Working over an initial graphite drawing, students are taught to layer transparent washes of pure color, developing light, mass and texture within a painting. In case of inclement weather, alternatives will include enclosed park locations, local museum and gallery visits to selected watercolor exhibitions, or studio work at the League.

The first class will meet at 8:45 am at the Art Students League, Studio 6 on the 4th floor. Please collect the supply list upon registration.

Frederick Brosen’s watercolors have been featured in numerous museum and gallery exhibitions across the country, and his works are in the permanent collection of many museums. In 2006 a book on his New York City paintings, Still New York, was published with an introduction by Ric Burns. In May 2012 he will have a solo show at the Museum of the City of New York’s new South Street Seaport location. He is represented by Hirschl & Adler Galleries and will have a show at their New York gallery in the fall of 2013.
