The New York Times said of her: “The simple realism, nostalgic atmosphere and luminous color with which Grandma Moses portrayed simple farm life and rural countryside won her a wide following. She was able to capture the excitement of winter’s first snow, Thanksgiving preparations and the new, young green of oncoming spring…in person, Grandma Moses charmed everyone she met”. We’ll learn about Anna Mary Robertson Moses in this hands on mixed media art workshop that will focus on her primitive folk art style. We will be drawing, using some simple watercolors, and combining other mixed media materials to create our own folk art using our imagination, creativity, and personal memories materials.

Materials fee of $8.00 for each student, payable to the instructor at the first class. You can also bring in some of your own art materials if desired, as well as photographs of that special place you’d like to recreate in this primitive folk art style.

Class limit of 15
