Paint IRB
Judy McCabe Jarvis
Thursdays 1pm-4pm

Students will work together at a local spot to capture the tropical beauty of IRB using the vibrant colors around us. Instructor will demonstrate the process and take a hands on approach and walk you through the steps in direct painting. She will help each student to paint the image. This is a "no fear, mistakes are welcome, it is only paint" type class.

Acrylic and Oil Paints welcome.

This is an OUTDOOR (on location) class, so dress appropriately. Bring your own easel, or borrow one of ours. During sunny days a hat or umbrella may be appropriate.

We will meet in the King Gallery of the Beach Art Center before each class and then go to our location.

*If the weather is poor, class is not canceled. Instead, we will paint inside from reference photos the instructor provides.

Judy McCabe Jarvis

Throughout her decades-spanning professional career in the Greater Philadelphia Area, Judith McCabe Jarvis has established herself as one the region’s foremost painterly realists, depicting the familiar subject matter of the landscape through abstracted lens.

Having developed her craft since early childhood, she graduated from Tyler School of Art at Temple University with a BFA in Painting, spending 5 months of her education studying the Masters in Rome, Italy.

Inspired by color and the environmental diversity of the area surround her home, she enjoys high intensity hues in the most unexpected places on her canvas and feels especially rewarded while plein air painting. Challenged by nature – picking bugs off the canvas, wresting high winds and a boiling sun—plein air allows her to connect both creatively and physically to her subject.

Not limited to the land, however, she is also a student of still life. Attracted to the glistening reflections of bottles and glass, the intimate beauty of a tea cup and the organic beauty of fruits and vegetables, still life offers its own challenges—negotiating the light, subject and perspective all within her quiet of her studio.

Whether it be the rolling hills of the Brandywine Valley or the delicate grouping of gin bottles, Judith McCabe Jarvis’s art aims t capture and slow the viewer so they might look at a small slice of life and see something more, whether it be wit, beauty or moody light.
