Israel Hershberg writes, about his extraordinary program:
"The JSS in Civita website has been updated for summer 2017! An authentic painter's destination since the 17th century. Not a Tuscan or Umbrian vacation spot; no tourist/food traps, no shopping obsessed sightseers wielding selfie sticks and no Pinocchio stores! Civita remains what it has always been for painters, a place where eye, memory and pictorial desires converge.

Our Guest of Honor is the extraordinary Susan Jane Walp whose exquisite and quiescent tabletop meditations reveal one of the most compelling and uncommon voices in painting today.

It's been a good spring break and we are excited that Seattle's weather is changing fast and we begin our Landscape Painting Program on April 30th. Details below:
Duration: April 30th to September 24th.
There is a two week closure for a painting excursion with the JSS in Civita Castellana, Italy August 8th to 22nd. Classes pause for that course and resume immediately after.
Ethos: The practice and traditions of working outdoors from direct observation.
Optional assigned studies of master works clarify these traditions in the history of painting.
Students and Instruction: Our students may be complete beginners, dedicated practitioners or anyone who sees painting outside as a healthy component of their painting practice no matter what genres they pursue. All are welcome in this humbling pursuit of painting the light outdoors.
Students should have a special interest in painting the beauty of the Northwest. It's more remote regions and it's regular neighborhoods.
Instruction is foundational, we constantly stress the basics, and also reflects a tradition which extends from the time of Corot to the present but is not restrictive in style.

Painting Classes: Meet 9am -1pm every Saturday and Sunday. We meet in the classroom for explanatory lessons and then head out to paint on location in places such as the natural setting of Seattle's neighborhoods and streets, beaches, parks, lakes and other inspiring places in the surrounding area.
Most of the class time will be painting outside, on location. In the case of rain, in covered locations or in the classroom.Courses are taught by a lead instructor and at least one teaching assistant. You can expect ample time with instructors at your easel.
There are a variety of painting presentations and demonstrations by a rotating group of landscape painters, acting as guest and co-instructors each summer.
Students will become familiar with and make certain tools which make the job of building a painting easier. These tools include charts, wheels and mechanical aids. Students should expect to invest a little time at home, weekly, in the creation of these valuable tools for use in class.
After every outdoor class students may take advantage of time for an instructor critique at the classroom.
Drawing: Students are expected, even at a very small scale, to begin keeping a sketchbook which compliments the lessons they are receiving in shape-tone analysis and composition.

Scholarship Discounts are available to students wishing to assist in the running of classes.
All students interested in a scholarship should contact [email protected] to request an application.

Corot has been a focus of study for students at Seattle Atelier since we opened. Images show beginning students, last Summer, working on rapid alla prima copies of Corot paintings before heading out to paint in the landscape, limited value studies in grisaille of Corot works by student Steve Momii and the work of the master. Learn why Renoir famously said "The painting of Corot is the art of the future."
