Friday, July 28 (evening), Saturday, July 29, and Sunday, July 30
at the Conway, MA Campus of the Conway School
Walter Cudnohufsky, Faculty

Walt Cudnohufsky, founder of the Conway School, has transferred some of his design teaching interest and skill to teaching watercolor over the past fifteen years.

Walt’s many satisfied students without exception rapidly expand their painting skills. He teaches in a step-by-step style with ample demonstrations. Samplings of Walt’s work and impressive student works can be found at Cudnohufsky Watercolors‘ website and Facebook page.

Come for an intensive weekend of painting. Subjects will vary and of course will include landscape painting, probably a New England barn and its setting.

All materials are provided. Plan to leave with several finished matted small paintings.

Friday evening, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

A short demonstration by Walt and warm-up exercises with pizza and salad.

Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Concentrate on basic techniques with a series of small painting exercises with multiple demonstrations. Learn how to hold a brush, use different brushes, mix color, and do the basics with both a loaded and a thirsty brush. Graded wash, soften edges, reserve white, and be both spontaneous and methodical.

*Saturday evening social gathering at local restaurant anticipated, optional and cost not included.

Sunday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

A larger painting with differing versions for each person of a common landscape subject. Small demonstrations and practice to parallel the production of the painting.


Walter Cudnohufsky Walter Cudnohufsky is owner of Walter Cudnohufsky Associates Landscape Architects, Land and Community Planners, Ashfield, MA. He is the founder and for 20 years was the director of the Conway School of Landscape Design. Walt is a registered Landscape Architect with over forty-four years experience ranging from the plaza design for the Toronto City Hall to regional planning studies for the North Atlantic Regions to private residences in the Berkshires. He received his M.L.A. from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and B.S.L.A. from Michigan State University.

Walt is an avid watercolor painter. He paints the many often evocative moods of the New England landscape, finding ways to have continuous ‘business with the landscape’ and to see it through multiple filters. His representational style borders on the fanciful and the semi-abstract. This is made possible by the effective editing of what he remembers while applying a well-developed sense of composition which stems from his talent and experience as a skilled designer. He works to complement wet in wet with sharp line technique. With a color palette that ranges, as nature’s does, from subtle monochromatic to the brilliant hues of New England autumns and sunsets, Walter’s work is conceived, most of all, from assembled memories.
