“Drawing and color are not distinct. Everything in nature is colored.” Paul Cézanne

April blossoms bring color back to Paris after a long grey winter. This spring drawing and painting class looks to Cézanne’s watercolors of flowers and fruits as subjects for inspiration.

Activities in this class will include:

• Study of Cézanne’s watercolors and still-life compositions

• Drawing from simple floral or fruit arrangements with an eye for capturing the essence of a subject.

• Observing color harmonies in nature and practice mixing colors

• Creating Cezanne inspired watercolor compositions from life

A 15€ supply fee is included in the cost of this course. All materials are provided. Open to all levels.

About the Instructor: Prior to settling in Paris, Jan Olsson was awarded the Professional Fellowship in Painting from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Her paintings have been exhibited in Paris’ most competitive juried exhibitions and are included in both private and museum collections. Visit her professional website and teaching blog.
