Autumn Reflections on the Esopus Creek Oil Painting Workshop with Karen O’Neil

October 15-17

The Emerson Resort & Spa is pleased to announce the 2018 art workshop package schedule. The new line-up of specially designed art packages follows on the heels of last autumn’s inaugural art workshop “Fall Foliage Landscape Oil Painting” taught by Mary Anna Goetz.

Each workshop includes demonstrations by the instructor, instruction on composition and design, individual guidance and critique. Workshop participants will enjoy a 3 night stay at the Emerson, with the third night free. A guided tour of the Emerson art collection is also a highlight of the package. Three-night package starts at $907 and in most classes includes supplies. All skill levels are welcome.

About the Artist/Workshops:

Karen O’Neil’s passion for painting light and color began as an art student. After earning a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, O’Neil studied in Provincetown with Henry Hensche, unparalleled colorist and winner of the Pulitzer Traveling Prize and Halgarten Award. Artist residencies at Millay and Woodstock School of Art followed. O’Neil’s work is represented in numerous private and corporate collections worldwide and has been featured in many print publications and blogs including The Artists Magazine and The Jealous Curator. Working outdoors on site, the Light on the Esopus Creek workshop focuses on scale, editing, and blocking form to record the luminous and changing light of the Catskills. Working quickly, students will be encouraged to start paintings at different times of day, and as light changes. O’Neil’s Autumn Reflections on the Esopus Creek workshop focuses on the spectacular color relationships between land, water and sky that are unique to the Catskill Mountains in October.
