PAFA Master Class with Joseph Sweeney in Cape May


  • Cape May, NJ 08204 (map)

CAPE MAY - Join plein air painter Joe Sweeney for a Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA) painting retreat in Cape May, New Jersey. Experience small town hospitality while painting the landscape/seascape of Cape May, including Cape May Point, the Cove with sweeping vistas, Cape May Lighthouse, and Sunset Beach.  Paint efficiently outdoors with tips on choosing a prime location, reading the weather and light at a particular time of day, and setting up a landscape palette. Instruction includes demonstrations and lectures on painting surfaces, materials, compositional drawing and color studies. Morning and evening painting times will leave the afternoons free to relax on the beach – the perfect artist’s getaway.  Instruction geared towards oil, acrylic and pastel, but experienced watercolorists are welcome.
