15th annual Hudson Valley Workshop with Burton Silverman
Dates to be announced in February!
Situated on 10 beautiful acres in the scenic Hudson Valley, Mr. Silverman will conduct two workshops from his country studio on (to be announced). Each workshop will be limited to 10 students only. The programs will consist of intensive 5-day morning drawing class and afternoon painting class with models, both indoors and out.* The curriculum will center on the figure and also specifically portraiture, but no area of pictorial concern is excluded. All mediums will be welcome (pastel, acrylics, w/c, etc.). Landscape opportunities are also available both on the property as well as for the more adventurous souls, at places nearby.
Where: The studio is located 60 miles north of New York City and about 10 miles from the Hudson River. It is most conveniently accessible by car (though rail travel from NY on the Central Hudson Commuter line is available).** There will be people attending the workshop who have cars and with whom one can share a ride. Commuting is possible though not advised since a full days involvement is enough to do without commuting. Full directions will be made available upon signing up. If you have transportation difficulties please inform us and we will try to assist you. For those who wish to Google our location, the workshop address is:
