Classes & Workshops At Weaverville Fine Art Studio
Mark Henry, a landscape artist and art instructor, is now offering classes and workshops at his new Weaverville studio location - Weaverville Fine Art Studio. Mark's influence in landscape painting is inspired by the Old Masters techniques and also by the Hudson River School of Art. Mark blends different techniques into what he calls "Modern Classical Realism Interpreted." Building on the traditions and skills began in ancient Greece, through the Renaissance and 19th and 20th centuries, his goal is to educate the public about classical drawing and painting and why it is still relevant in today’s world.
With an emphasis on learning to draw (either for the beginner or for the practicing artist who would like to get back to the basics), Mark will take students from the fundamentals to a place where they can incorporate their knowledge into their unique style of artistic expression.
My studio here in Weaverville, NC is a tranquil environment in which to create. I am in awe of our beautiful surrounding area and strive to capture each vista and scene with realism and a touch of impressionism. I participate annually in the WNCAP (Western North Carolina Aids Project) Raise Your Hand art auction. In 2015, my piece entitled “Cregg Farms SC” brought in the highest bid in the show. Additionally, my painting “Redmond Road” was the highest selling painting in the 2015 RiverLink art show and benefit.
