Sid’s Studio: Painting Loose Landscapes

Frederic Remington’s late work glows with vibrancy and movement, as seen in our exhibit, Night & Day: Frederic Remington’s Final Decade. Under the guidance of local artist Michelle Mackey, participants will study the geometry within Remington’s compositions and the power of color in these late paintings. In this 2-session painting workshop for adults, students will practice the skill of accurate color mixing and constructing successful compositions with acrylics in order to create a loosely painted landscape. Learning from the masters is always fun, just bring an open mind!



This multi-day workshop takes place over 2 separate sessions in the museum’s studio classroom:

  • Saturday, March 25 @ 1:30-4:00pm
  • Saturday, April 15 @ 1:30-4:00pm



The museum will provide each student all necessary art supplies and tools during class .


$30 Supply Fee
