Impasto Painting at River Bend Farm – 5/26/19

Third Time’s the Charm! Let’s All Do a Sunshine Dance!

Our very own talented artist Laura O. Cenedella will lead us through a workshop on impasto painting at River Bend Farm in Uxbridge! Impasto involves using very thick paint – often by adding in a gel or other material – to create a raised 3D effect with the paint. Here’s a page about it:

Technically this location is known as the Blackstone River and Canal Heritage Park, but the big red barn on the property is the River Bend Farm. So that’s what most people call the place. It’s at:

287 Oak Street
Uxbridge, MA 01569

There are lovely talking trails along the canal, quite flat, and a fishing spot as well.

Bring a snack, bring your creativity, and we’ll have some fun!
