Watercolor on Location with Artist Peter Cusack

Watercolor on Location with Artist Peter Cusack In-Person

Join artist Peter Cusack for sketching and watercolor painting outdoors (or indoors, in off weather) at specially selected locations close to the Scoville Library.

SIGN UP for each session that you can attend by clicking "SHOW MORE DATES" in the box below.

Please note that our location (like the weather) may change each week. If you register to attend the workhsop on this Wednesday, you will receive an email on Monday with location information.

Choose your subject, observe, and sketch to capture a sense of place, time, subject, story, and ambience. Each week, Peter will focus on one or more specific techniques such as perspective, shading, cross hatching, blending, tonal scribbles, and gesture drawing.

Peter welcomes anyone -- from beginner to accomplished artist -- looking to improve their skills, try new techniques, and enjoy the quiet, focused company of others while sketching en plein air.

Peter Cusack is an artist, art instructor, editor, and curator. He holds degrees from Syracuse University and Ecole Albert Dufois in France. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of American Illustration, the New York Transit Museum, and the United States Air Force. His work has also appeared in Architectural Digest, An Illustrated Life, and Drawing Inspiration: Visual Artists at Work. Peter is the founder of COCOA: The Journal of Cornwall Contemporary Art. He lives in West Cornwall and teaches in New York City.

Seating and supplies (paper, pencils, and a watercolor palette) will be provided. You are also welcome to bring your own supplies.

This series is made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the Scoville Library.
