July 26th-27th, 2003, Art Workshop
with Kevin Fitzgerald
The Eastern Shore,
Chincoteague, Virginia


"Starting a Dialogue &
Coming in for a Landing"

Over a long weekend, six art students from Loudoun County High School, in Leesburg, Virginia, Oakton High School, in Vienna, Virginia, and Morgantown High School, in Morgantown, West Virginia, traveled to the Eastern Shore to paint its varied landscapes and learn as many secrets as Kevin Fitzgerald, one of the region's most respected artists, would share. The sessions began in the classroom, moved on to the field, and ended with a dialogue that had everything to do with life, and, therefore, everything to do with art. The students' plein air work from this session at the shore captured the open air, primordial mud, capricious light, and rhythmic movement of water and cloud.
