ARTIST: John P. Lasater IV
Beginner to Advanced Levels
A familiar name in the national plein air scene, John excels at design, sophisticated color mixing, paint application and edge-control. And now, with years of teaching under his belt, expect to be encouraged and challenged by his demonstrations and hands-on help.
John has been influenced by many artists: directly through workshops with Israel Hershberg, C.W. Mundy, and Carolyn Anderson, and indirectly through self-study of historical sources such as Charles Hawthorne, Edwin Dickenson, Georgio Morandi, James Whistler, Edgar Degas, Andrew Wyeth, Camille Corot, Diego Velazquez, and Italian and Roman historical art.
