The Cape School of Art has a unique purpose: to educate the artist in the perception and use of color and light in representational painting. Through workshops, classes, and lectures we work to inform a new generation of artists, patrons, Provincetown residents and visitors about the teaching and enduring influence of American Impressionist Henry Hensche and his mentor Charles W. Hawthorne, founder of Provincetown's historic art colony and the original Cape Cod School of Art.
