In 1899 Charles Hawthorne, founded Provincetown’s art colony and Cape Cod School of Art, teaching the perception and use of color and light.
Today the accomplished students of Hawthorne’s assistant Henry Hensche continue to teach the perception and use of color and light as they were taught. We rely on our current and future students to have the passion to study as we have and become the next generation of Cape School painters.
