Painting from the Masters

Copying the works of painting masters is a great way to learn from them, and to see deeply into their paintings. Henri Matisse and Paul Cezanne had some influence on renowned Provincetown artists, among them Marguerite Zorach, Milton Avery, and Hans Hofmann. In this class we will copy paintings by Matisse and Cezanne, and go see works by the Provincetown artists who were inspired by them. Then, we will paint our own still life compositions, incorporating what we have learned from our studies. Some painting experience preferred but not required.
