Why do I have to be one of those working-slob riff-raff types who has to report to work on weekday mornings. I miss all the best estate sales, open houses and luncheons — the stuff that Fairfield County does so well.
But sadly, I’m not a real housewife of Fairfield County. If I were, I’d probably really enjoy the Summer Painting Workshop at Southport Galleries.While sipping a giant Mimosa.
Artist William Schaefer is holding a five-week painting workshop, starting Wednesday, July 14. He will explain and demonstrate the techniques of impressionist painting, the style developed in the 19th century by artists like Renoir and Monet. Classes are at the gallery and “outside around scenic Southport.” And the students won’t care a bit that while they’re exploring the subtle beauties of the boats on the harbor, I’m toiling in an office cubicle in Bridgeport.
Artist students are responsible for bringing their own materials. Email sara@southport galleries or call 203-292-6124.
Just goes to show that if you’re working in an office from 9 to 5, you might have no idea how much activity swirls about in the streets.
