This event is no longer on sale.

August 14th: Peter Seward

Class: Depiction of the natural world in watercolor

We will use the natural setting of the grounds of the Wild Center for observation and sketching, and then move indoors to continue with watercolor painting. Our subject matter will be trees, with the objective of learning the individual characteristics of different tree species through the medium of paint.


Peter grew up as one of five children. They didn't fully appreciate their artist-parents' efforts to introduce them to painting and majestic landscapes. After all these years, Peter is embracing early influences shaped by geography in his paintings. He worked professionally as an illustrator behind the scenes in New York City for two decades. Since moving to the Adirondack Park in 2004, he has become conscious of being part of the continuum of the Hudson River School. His recent body of work, entitled "Stealth Towers," has been showcased in solo and group exhibitions in upstate New York, New York City, New Mexico, and Connecticut.
