In the galleries be inspired by Louis Dewis’s romantic paintings of France’s scenic views, as well as by patriotic American landscapes by artists such as Johann Herman Carmiencke and Thomas Moran. Create a masterpiece with acrylic paint, gouache, and mixed media. Learn how to use a paint brush and palette knife to create expressive strokes and movement in your canvas painting!
