Jacobsen Landscape Opens Its Doors To Area Artists
Local landscape firm invites community to attend a series of art classes at its Design Center in Midland Park.
Local artists are invited to attend a unique series of art classes at the Jacobsen Landscape Design Center in Midland Park, N.J. The classes, being held in collaboration with fine artist Joe Terrone of Glen Rock, will provide aspiring and experienced artists with the skills needed to improve their artistic abilities.
The eight evening classes - part of the company's series of successful art and cultural events begun at its Landscape Gallery in Saddle River last year - kicks off February 17 and will run through the Spring. They are being held at the beautiful Jacobsen Landscape Design Center at 413 Godwin Avenue in Midland Park.
Aimed at teens and adults, both beginners and experienced students of art, the classes will allow attendees to bring out the creativity they always knew they had by teaching the basic techniques to get started as an artist, while expanding on what they already know.
"Holding these classes in the creative environment provided by the Jacobsen?Landscape Design?Center adds a unique element to them,"says Terrone, who previously collaborated with Jacobsen Landscape at a Gallery Art Show in support of Children's Aid & Family Services in 2009. "The landscape design work being done by Jacobsen Landscape professionals uses many of the same skills we will be teaching to the students in this class."
"Opening up our Design Center as a venue for this unique class is just a continuing part of our commitment to our community," adds Glenn Jacobsen, CLP, founder and president of the 33-year-old local landscape business. "We look forward to helping Joe Terrone share his talents with young artists from our area."
Students will learn proportion, shading, depth and texture and will be taught how to make their compositions excel through movement, balance, proportion, rhythm and harmony. For high school students, the class will provide direction on their portfolios for college admissions.
The cost of the eight two-hour sessions is $175. All students will also receive a complimentary evening seminar in "The Principles of Landscape Design" from the Jacobsen Landscape Design Team.
Joseph Terrone is an accomplished artist with more than 30 years of experience. He is a graduate of Pratt University with an MFA in painting. He holds NJ Teaching Certification for grades K-12. Terrone has shown his paintings in numerous galleries and has sold work throughout the country. His work can be viewed at www.joeterrone.com.
