Capturing Cape Cod

Wennie Huang and Allison Valchuis
Capturing Cape Cod

The unforgettable light over a lyrical coastal landscape of lighthouses, dunes, water, and rooftops inspired painters such as Edward Hopper, Charles Hawthorne, and many others to capture Cape Cod’s unique character.

Join Art Center faculty member Wennie Huang and Director and Cape Cod native, Allison Valchuis, on a five-day exploration of this iconic American landscape dotted with charming historic seaside towns. Accommodations in the village center of Wellfleet, day trips to picturesque plein air spots along the Cape, daily art demos, and individual and group lessons in watercolor and pastel, and an exploration of the local art scene are just a few of the many unique experiences included in this New England getaway.
