Short Course: American Impressionism is designed to take a deep dive into our permanent collection. All sessions are free and open to the public, no registration required.

Led by educator Elisabeth Palmer, this course will address the beginnings of Impressionism in France, where American painter Mary Cassatt was working, and the evolution of the style in the U.S., where artists such as Childe Hassam and William Merritt Chase adopted the trend. American Impressionism will also examine the concepts that defined the movement, such as an interest in representing contemporary daily life.
