About the event

Program Details

Artist and teacher Howard Rose will be leading a series of Plein Air Painting Classes for this summer with the Bridgehampton Museum. Plein Air painting has a lengthy history on the East End of Long Island with artists like William Merritt Chase. These classes are for artists of all abilities from beginners to professionals and will take place at a series of beautiful locations within the Bridgehampton area. Join us to get hands on with some history!

Our fifth session will be located at the headquarters of the Bridgehampton Museum, the historic Corwith House which is located at 2368 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton, NY 11932. Guests are asked to arrive at 10am and may stay until sundown after the class has finished if they wish.

Lastly, this fall our aim is to curate a small show of the works you and your fellow classmates worked on this summer! The works will be displayed in the historic Nathaniel Rogers House for a limited time this fall.
