Adults Paint Like Gauguin

Monday, March 11, 2019

Art facilitator Christie Inocencio will help you create your own take on Paul Gauguin's distinctive post-Impressionist style.

Canvas, palette, and paints are all provided. Advance registration is required.

About Paul Gauguin
A revolutionary artist, Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) began his career mentored by Impressionists Camille Pissarro, Edgar Degas, and Paul Cézanne, and he worked in their style. He collaborated with other artists of his time, including Van Gogh and Émile Bernard, as he experimented with Symbolism and Synthetism/Cloisonnism. In addition to being a famed painter and printmaker, Gauguin also created works of ceramics and wood carvings. Toward the end of his life, he spent ten years in French Polynesia, and most of his paintings from this time depict people or landscapes from that region.
