Each workshop is designed for all skill levels and those interested in registering for the workshop only are also welcome. Karen O’Neil’s passion for painting light and color began as an art student. After earning a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, O’Neil studied in Provincetown with Henry Hensche, winner of the Pulitzer Traveling Prize and Halgarten Award, which kindled her career as an unparalleled colorist. Artist residencies at Millay and Woodstock School of Art followed, as well as teaching at the Art Students League of NY. O’Neil’s work is represented in numerous private and corporate collections worldwide and has been featured in many print publications and blogs including The Artists Magazine and The Jealous Curator. Working outdoors on site, the Light on the Esopus Creek workshop focuses on scale, editing, and blocking form to record the luminous and changing light of the Catskills. Working quickly, students will be encouraged to start paintings at different times of day, and as light changes.
