Beginning Tuesday, January 15, the Farnsworth Art Museum will host a representational painting workshop led by Tanya Harsch. Open to all levels, the class will take place on Tuesday evenings through March 19, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the museum’s Gamble Education Center at the corner of Union and Grace streets in Rockland. With a focus on representational oil and acrylic painting, the class aims to further participants’ painting skills through individual instruction and demonstration. Each student will work at their own pace on individual projects while also learning technique, brushwork, color mixing, composition and, most importantly, accurate observation. Participants are welcome to bring images or objects to class as subject matter. A realist painter working out of her studio in Appleton, instructor Tanya Harsch trained in the atelier tradition at the Florence Academy in Italy and the Ravenswood Atelier in Chicago. The fee for the workshop is $325, $275 for Farnsworth members. For more information or to register, visit www.farnsworthmu-seum.org
