Admission Fee: $35 per person

Vincent van Gogh painted at least 15 paintings of olive trees, mostly in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in 1889. Van Gogh found respite and relief in interaction with nature. When the series of olive tree paintings was made in 1889, he was subject to illness and emotional turmoil, yet the paintings are considered to be among his finest works.

For this class, we will create an adaptation of Van Gogh's Olive Trees with Yellow Sky and Sun. Your instructor will guide you from blank canvas to finished masterpiece in this three-hour class. Your $35 registration fee includes all supplies. No previous experience is required.

The online class will be broadcast simultaneously via Zoom. You will pick up your supplies the day before class is scheduled. An instructional assistant will be present to monitor the Zoom feed and relay questions to the instructor. A two-camera feed provides both a close-up view of the instructor's canvas and a wider angle that shows the instructor while working.
