Local artist Jaye Fox will guide participants in the basic skills of landscape painting from the vantage point of the Stone Hill Meadow. Fox will provide group and individual instruction in planning compositions that include elements of the environment, as well as moving people. In the event of rain, the class will meet and work under a tent located beside the museum building, and in the event of severe weather, the class will draw in the permanent collection galleries, with materials provided by the Clark.

Jaye Fox is an accomplished representational artist who received her training in the traditional atelier system, including at the Art Students League, the National Academy, and private study. Her artistic practice is enriched by the mentorship of internationally-recognized artists including Greg Kreutz, Timothy Clark and Frederick Brosen. She is the co-director of studio21south, a gallery in North Adams (

Pissarro’s People offers a fresh look at the Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro by examining his portraits, harvest scenes, and market views through the lens of his personal relationships, profound social and economic concerns, and anarchist beliefs. Based on new scholarship by curator and leading Pissarro scholar Richard R. Brettell, this visually stunning exhibition brings together some of the artist’s most iconic figural works with lesser-known pictures from private and public collections from around the world. This exhibition was organized by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. It is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
