Tutor: Daphne Jefferis BA(Hons) PGCEAGo to all Courses
Labelled the ‘Father of Impressionism’, this one-day course will explore how Pissarro encouraged and supported the younger members of the Impressionist group. Adapting to new styles and colour theories in his own work, Pissarro developed and responded to the changes in artistic practice at the end of the 19th century in Paris.
Please note: Due to the easing of social distancing measures, this face to face course has a capacity of 21 attendees. This is set at 75% of full capacity to ensure safety for our students and tutors. We will endeavour to increase this number to full capacity in due course.
