​Joan McConaghey's painting is a joyous exploratory journey. Her work varies from many of her travels across the country and abroad. Her work is of seascapes, landscapes, lighthouses, flowers, still-life, whatever attracts her to apply the paint to canvas.

Art Workshops

Plein Air Painting with Ida*

Fridays at 10:00 a.m. to noon


For July and August, we will continue our plein air painting sessions. For July, we will work on one painting for two classes. Loosening up with  paint will be stressed. Size must be at least 18'' x 24'' and brushes can be size 8 and up, along with a palette knife. In August, we will find shady spots near water or under the trees, and go back to completing a painting for each class. Classes will focus on being expressive with color, looking at 19th and 20th century artists for inspiration. 


Students must bring their own supplies to class including paints, brushes, canvas or canvas boards, a palette, portable easel and folding chair. Students may borrow an easel from Hamilton House, but it is their responsibility to transport it to and from the location. Supplies include an assortment of charcoal, pencils, erasers, an 18x24 drawing pad and newsprint pad, folding chair and an optional 18x24 drawing board with clips. 


Ida Schmulowitz graduated from RISD with a BFA in painting in 1974. She has shown locally and nationally. Her work is included in corporate and private collections including the RISD Museum and the Newport Art Museum. Her website is www.idaschmulowitz.com.
