How to Paint Like an Impressionist
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Membership in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is required to register for Osher classes. If you are unsure about your membership status, call us at 801-581-6461. If you are new to Osher, follow the Membership link at the right to learn more about membership.

This is a new course designed for Osher members who have taken an art class before and have supplies ready to paint in their favorite medium. Class members may choose to paint in watercolor, gouache, pastel, acrylic, watercolor pencil, or colored pencil. All media are welcome except oil, because of the fumes of turpentine. Oil painters are welcome to attend class and complete their oil paintings at home. We will study the Impressionists, understand their philosophy, and then paint in their style. Impressionists are the bridge from the Renaissance to modern art. We will learn the new painting techniques they developed. By studying Cezanne, Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Morisot, and Seurat, we will learn techniques with picture planes, soft edges, medium values, and more. For those who like adventure, we will risk giving up our traditional painting style to try something new.
