Plein Air Painting workshop

Saturday + Sunday  9 am – 12 noon

In this class we will learn the direct benefit of painting from nature. We will sketch with paint,concentrating on the color, value, masses and their relationships to one another. Concentrating on these relationships allows us to eliminate the detail and take our focus off representing "the thing." Painting from nature is a specialized skill everyone can develop. With few, inexpensive tools, a limited paint pallet and an understanding of color, temperature and value, the world will be yours to study.

Mary’s devotion to light and color is evident in all of her paintings. While her work is influenced by the impressionist palette of the Cape, her work is less idealized and more contemporary by design. Mary’s plein-air paintings reflect her passion and devotion to capturing the exquisite drama of nature’s fleeting moods. Returning to Provincetown to paint and study the Cape light every spring since 1989, she has had numerous solo shows and exhibitions in Provincetown and Vermont. Her work is in private collections and museums .Mary makes her home in Vermont where she lives with her husband, the sculptor John Cassin, their two dogs, Paris and Hunter and their cat, Seamus. Mary studied fine art at Greenfield Community College in Massachusetts and continued her art studies with a scholarship at the University of Massachusetts. Today, Mary carries on the tradition by teaching plein-air painting classes on the Cape, in Vermont and on trips to Europe. View more of Mary’s work HERE
