(1 block West of 1st and 1/2 block North of Grant Rd.)
Program: Lois Griffel
Want your paintings to make an “impression” with color? Learn proven techniques with nationally recognized local artist, Lois Griffel. On October 19, Lois will demonstrate, with pastels, how to master impressionist color by explaining the concepts of interpreting light.
Griffel has authored two books about impressionistic color. The first, Painting the Impressionist Landscape: Lessons in Interpreting Light and Color, I Painting Impressionist Color---Any Style, Any Medium. Both books explain how all artists---regardless of approach or style---can enhance the color in their paintings. She promises her demo will do the same.
Lois Griffel studied at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design in New York, where her teachers included Everett Raymond Kinstler and Harvey Dinnerstein. She followed in their footsteps and made her living painting portraits for over 10 years.
During that time, she began in-depth study of the Impressionist theory of painting with Henry Hensche, who was Charles Hawthorne’s protégé and then director of the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, Massachusetts. When Hensche retired, Lois became the third director of the school.
She has exhibited in many invitational shows and leads plein air workshops in landscape painting throughout the U.S.A. She is on the board of the Tucson Plein Air Painters Society (TPAPS).
