Open Studio from Home:
Horace Pippin and Rockwell Kent

SAT, Jan 23, 2021
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

Families with kids of all ages

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney Educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

Horace Pippin’s The Buffalo Hunt and Rockwell Kent’s The Trapper both depict snowy scenes that stretch far into the distance. In The Buffalo Hunt, a buffalo is encircled by dogs, while a hunter waits perched behind a hill. Though he likely never saw a buffalo in person, Pippin may have called upon his own memories as a trapper in the Pocono Mountains as well as historical engravings of the American West. In The Trapper, Kent painted a man and his dog at the edge of a snowy cliff. He created this scene based on the view from his Vermont studio.  

This week, we will learn how Pippin and Kent created these winter landscapes from their own memories and imagination. Then, we will collage our own winter landscapes using layers of blank white paper. 

Materials: 

  • Multiple sheets of white paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick or glue
