Print Info

The landscapes of the North Country give us a unique sense of place. They are also the subject for many great artists, including Rockwell Kent, Fredrick Remington, & Winslow Homer. In our group sessions we'll review the works of these artists & others. Each of us will also design a landscape based on our own unique view of a mountainside, valley expanse, or waterway that we live near and/or pass by each day. Bring your sketches, photos, & imagination to the first of three sessions, & we'll help each other with the planning &(hopefully) completion of a piece of art. It could be a drawing, watercolor or oil painting, mixed media art, or an original photograph created by you. You will be working at home & will bring your works-in-progress to each session. The goal is to support & inspire each other in a space where everyone's opinions are valued.

Sandra Nestlerode-Hale has a Masters degree from Keele University, England in Medieval Art. She has been teaching art for 20 years to students of all ages. She moved to the North Country in 2018 and has exhibited in juried shows here since 2019.
