About Frankie Gollub
Inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and 19th Century American Landscape painting, students will learn basic classical realist landscape painting skills using oil colors. They will be taught how to construct a landscape, render skies, atmospheric perspective, and paint different types of trees, depict water, and create the effects of light.
Frankie Gollub is professional artist whose landscapes are influenced by pre-Impressionist landscape painters, especially the Hudson River School of the 19th Century. As a landscape painter, plein air studies play a vital role in his practice as a painter. With a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University, he has 6 years experience teaching art from preschoolers to adults.

This workshop is made possible by a Snohomish County Arts Commission Grant, Friends of the Arts of Mountlake Terrace and the City of Mountlake Terrace.
