Class Offering:

Landscape: Susanna Coffey, July 12—July 23 This class will focus on the genre of landscape and its possibilities for expressing a sense of the personal and the contemporary. Set in the beautiful landscape of Reeves-Reed Arboretum, Summit, New Jersey, students will work daily on paintings made from direct observation and paintings composed from a variety of source materials. Group critiques and discussions will take place each day and/or evening in order to focus on each participant's artistic direction. Students will develop a strong sense of form, color, and composition in order to develop a personal and mature body of work. A visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be included in the first week.

Susanna Coffey received her MFA from Yale University of Art and her BFA from the University of Connecticut. She is a tenured faculty member at the Art Institute of Chicago. Some of her most recent solo exhibitions include the New York Studio School, Isabel Ignacio Gallery in Seville, Spain, Alpha Gallery in Boston and the Maya Polsky Gallery in Chicago.

The New York Studio School is committed to giving a significant education to the aspiring artist that can last a lifetime. The aim is to reveal to the entering student appropriate questions about drawing, painting and sculpture and to encourage them to work hard and think rigorously at all times, enabling them to construct an ethical and philosophical framework for their life's work.

Reeves-Reed Arboretum is the only public garden and one of the largest green spaces in the City of Summit. The Arboretum seeks to engage, educate and enrich its visitors so they may become better stewards of nature and the environment. This mission is achieved through the care and utilization of an historic estate and gardens. Reeves-Reed Arboretum is listed on both the National and New Jersey Historic Registries.
