Philadelphia Museum of Art “Views and Vistas” A Landscape Workshop

March 14 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

“Views and Vistas”

A Landscape Workshop


With a Museum guide, participants will enjoy “slow looking” and explore various works by artists in our American galleries. We’ll take in a monumental panorama commissioned to promote tourism of the unexplored American West, travel to an Ecuadorian volcano, and relax in the twilight of an Italian campagna.


In the studio participants will learn how to draw landscapes with color conte crayon. Then we will practice using hatching and masking techniques to render convincing foliage and the texture of the landscape details. Students can bring photos of landscapes that they would like to use for reference.


These Workshops for people with Parkinson’s disease and their Care Partners include a one-hour private guided tour and two hour studio experience with a half-hour break for lunch. The fee for Workshops is $10 per person. Care Partners and Personal Attendants are admitted free. Parking is free of charge. Classes are limited so please register early.


Your studio art class experience will be taught by artist Janice Merendino. She is a painter, a ceramic artist, and has been an adjunct instructor at the Museum since 1998. A graduate of Moore College of Art, Janice is Director of the Branch Out Project.
