Learn how literature informs painting and visuals inspire language in monthly workshop

Renée BouchardGenevieve Plunkett


SHAFTSBURY - Join Renée Bouchard and Genevieve Plunkett in an image and text landscape study class at the Robert Frost Stone House Museum, 121 Vermont Rte 7A, each second Thursday of the month from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Beginning Thursday, May 12 , participants of “A Literary and Painterly Landscape” will meet once a month to explore, record, and contemplate the beautiful and history-laden setting in and around Robert Frost’s Vermont home.
Equipped with both visual and literary arts, the class will explore what it means to be an observer, and how best to capture a sense of place through memory, color interaction, composition, and text. How do the descriptive passages from favorite works of literature inform painting? How can visual cues reshape the way language is used? And what does the landscape itself have to say about it?
Bouchard and Plunkett want to see all kinds of creative minds. They want to see those looking to get started with journaling and sketching and people hoping to inspire bigger, ongoing projects in attendance. Both instructors will come prepared to share their favorite techniques, but be ready to get experimental, out of doors, and creative.
Register at https://robert-frost-stone-house-museum.square.site. Those interested can register for all six, two-hour classes, three classes or just one. Bring supplies to the first class, including a variety of preferred materials: paint, canvas/paper/panel, brushes, pencils, pens, and paper or a laptop.
