Firmin will be taking her students painting outside in the streets of Provincetown, instructing them in working quickly with big brushes and bold color to capture the urban energy. This workshop is structured for both beginners and advanced painters who want to expand their painting skills. Students don’t need a lot of experience to benefit greatly from this class. On the first day, the class will meet and paint at the Provincetown Monument. Firmin will be giving demonstrations at the beginning of each class, and there will be a critique at the end of each session. The next four days students will meet at assigned locations in Provincetown TBD.
