Since Julian Alden Weir, America's most beloved Impressionist, acquired this rural, rustic retreat in Branchville, Connecticut in 1882, there has been a rich artistic tradition at Weir Farm National Historical Park. To honor and continue this tradition, Weir Farm made its popular Impressionist Painting Workshop with Dmitri Wright virtual for everyone! This five-part virtual series features Master Impressionist Dmitri Wright and highlights the science and poetry of Impressionist landscape painting.

As an instructor of Impressionist Painting Workshops at Weir Farm National Historical Park for over a decade, Wright seeks to paint what is good, beautiful, and true in life by using techniques from the Impressionist Masters and his classical training from the Academy.
