The Drawing and Painting students were treated to a great lecture by guest artist Arnie Casavant today. He created a quick landscape painting using complimentary colors for the students. During his demonstration Arnie highlighted key topics and how to start a landscape painting. The students were thrilled and excited to start their paintings.
Thanks to a generous grant from the BEF guest artist Arnie Casavant will begin his residency with the Drawing and Painting students on Wednesday, April 15 at 10am.
Arnie Casavant is a landscape painter who is exhibiting in the gallery and Cambridge Street Gallery and will work with the students from April- June to create a series of landscapes.
