Immersive Art Experience with Crooked Tree Arts Center and IPR

Take a deep dive into the world of Impressionism with art, music and food.

Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City is teaming with Interlochen Public Radio for an immersive art experience into the Impressionist worlds of Manet and Monet.

This four-week class during the month of October includes art, music and food from the culture of late 19th-century France.

Week one (Oct. 6) will include an introduction to Manet and Monet and their influences. There will also be a presentation from Interlochen Public Radio's Music Director Amanda Sewell about the music of Impressionism.

During weeks two and three (Oct. 13 and 20), artist and CTAC instructor Royce Deans will discuss and demonstrate the artists and their styles. Participants will create 16x20 paintings in the style of the artists while listening to a playlist curated by Amanda.

In the fourth and final week (Oct. 27), participants will display their work, sample French foods created by a local chef and discuss their paintings and experience in the course.

This class is designed for students of various levels of experience, including those who have never painted before. Supplies are provided and include canvas, paint, and a custom art journal that will include photos to be used for reference during and after the class.
