artBEAT: The Emotion of Line & Colour with Jerry Fresia
Sat June 9, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm BST
Put yourself in the shoes of one of the great French Impressionists as artist and educator, Jerry Fresia, demonstrates the oil painting technique that defined a movement.
Learn what it means for a visual artist to stay in the moment, focusing not on the subject or the end result, but on line, colour and the process itself as the image emerges.
Jerry Fresia studied painting in the studio of William J. Schultz whose teachers before him handed down a method of painting taught in late 19th century Paris. A Master Artist of the American Impressionist Society, Jerry and his wife manage their own gallery in Bellagio, Italy on Lake Como. Jerry teaches workshops in Bellagio, in September and in St. Petersburg, Florida, in February. Jerry also holds a PhD in American political economy and has written extensively both on American politics as well as on painting and the creative process.
