Join artist Ron Fritsch with an exercise following a Claude Monet painting with acrylic or oils. Explore the development from beginning to completion. Monet’s paintings were about time and color interpreting the way natural form and light interact. Enrich your understanding and learn how you can apply these techniques with your own art.  The three-day workshop will begin with a short talk about impressionism. Participants are invited to bring samples and discuss their own understanding of the Impressionist movement. Follow along with Ron completing an impressionist painting of Monet’s. We will then interpret an everyday scene into an impressionist style painting.

The work of Ronald Fritsch hangs in a number of private and corporate collections. His creative path has included an MA in fine arts from NMSU, illustration and art direction for the Las Cruces Sun News and 40 years of teaching oil, acrylic and watercolor painting. He currently lives in Las Cruces, has taught classes for the El Paso Museum of Art and was senior creative director at Sanders\Wingo Advertising, where he’s won numerous awards for his advertising work. He is now retired and enjoys his time with the arts.
