What You’ll Do
American master painter Georgia O’Keefe used color in a way many great artists could never hope to match. This talent is particularly apparent in her romantic 1928 masterpiece Oriental Poppies, in which she used color to command the attention of passersby, saying, “I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers.” During this three-hour class, painter Ilsa Brittain covers some background on the masterpiece, and then shows you how to re-create its rich reds and purples on a canvas of your own—just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Peer Into the Poppies
Ilsa will open the class by sharing some context on the painting, then she’ll guide students through the mixing and brushstrokes necessary to re-create O’Keefe’s commanding colors.
No Experience Necessary
Don’t worry if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush—Ilsa will guide you through every step.
All the materials are provided, including the paint, palettes, brushes, easels, aprons, and a 16”x20” canvas, the latter of which you’ll take home at the end of class.
Many kids have a dream job in mind, but few are as practical about achieving that goal as Ilsa Brittain. She knew she wanted to be an artist at just 4 years old, the age when she learned how to draw. That led to painting and (many years later) setting up studios in Paris, Moscow, and Kathmandu. The professional artist now has 20 years of experience under her belt, an MFA from the New York Academy of Art, and a mention in the Wild magazine as one of the school’s top graduates in 2014.
