Master Class Workshops - Walking Tour Townscape Painting Workshop with Michael Viera

Thursday, Aug 22, 2019 from 9:00am to 4:00pm


In 1665 a group of colonists from the west side of the Connecticut River separated from the Saybrook colony in what became known as the “Loving Parting.” In 1855 this new colony, called Lyme, was divided to create the current towns of Lyme and Old Lyme.

Based on the Walking Tours of Lyme Street, this one week workshop takes advantage of the art inspiring properties of historical Old Lyme. Follow in the footsteps of the Old Lyme Impressionists and paint the town. Tour is enhanced by talks from the Historical Society and a visit to the Florence Griswold Museum.

Instructor: Michael Viera, B.F.A., Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts; M.F.A., New York Academy of Art
