PAINT LIKE A FRENCH IMPRESSIONIST

Instructor: Edward Abela

 

Upper Village One, 7th Floor Party Room

9500 Markham Road, Markham
10am—3:30pm

 

What made the French Impressionists so popular worldwide? When 
they first came on the scene in the 19th century they were despised by 
the critis, but eventually became very popular with their art hanging 
in most national galleries. What makes an impressionist painting any 
different from other works? Edward Abela will explain the techniques 
and colours they used and how you too can be an impressionist painter.
