Painting Workshop: Developing a Tonalist palette with Kevin Cook.

Tonalists created neutral tones by diminishing the intensity of colors. Explore color theory through a Tonalist perspective by creating color swatches in a hands on workshop led by the accomplished local painter. 

Kevin Cook is an accomplished landscape painter whose style is strongly influenced by Hudson River School artists of the nineteenth century. He has been named a Painting Fellow by New York Foundation for the Arts, and subsequently served on NYFA’s Artists’ Advisory Committee. In 2009, Kevin’s work was exhibited at the American Consulate in Hong Kong as part of the Artists In Embassies program. Kevin has also been a guest educator here at the Dorsky Museum. He is represented in a number of galleries and has a strong regional following.
