Landscape class this weekend at Townsend Atelier.
As Chattanooga exchanges the heat of summer for the cool breezes and rich colors of autumn, what could be better than capturing the changing season on canvas? Townsend Atelier is offering an intensive two-day workshop for artists of all skill levels to do just that.
The workshop will be held Oct. 25-26 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. both days. Naturalist painter Thomas Caleb Goggans will lead students in live demonstrations, outdoor painting sessions and lessons about great landscape painters.
Workshop attendees will also receive insightful critiques and individual direction. No previous painting experience is necessary, and anyone from age 15 and up is welcome.
Goggans is a contemporary naturalist painter, studio teacher, and faculty member at Townsend Atelier. He draws inspiration from the Naturalist painters of the 19th century, particularly Sargent, Zorn, Sorolla and Lepage. He studied in New England at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, one of the only traditional art colleges in the country.
Pre-registration is required. Register by phone at (423) 266-2712 or online at townsendatelier.com. More information about the class (including pricing and a required materials list) is also available online.
