Henry Hensche was a student of Charles Hawthorne and taught for many years at the Cape Cod School of Art. I first became aware of Hensche when I viewed paintings by Camille Przewodek who was a student of Hensche. Camille's use of color is impressive! I took a Przewodek Workshop and had my first exposure to the Hensche School of thought.....enough to make me want to learn more. Very interested, and puzzled, I purchased a book "Hensche on Painting" and began to absorb a little more. I recently attended a short Workshop with John Ebersberger who was also a student of Hensche. Ohhh...again....those COLORS!!!
I have been fully aware that right here in Salisbury we have a resident artist who was a student of Hensche! ....RobertToth !! Nearly every time we talk, I am quixxing him about the Henschew experience. Because I yearn to learn more and want to understood the concept, I am now taking newly offered classes that Robert Toth is teaching at the Rufty Holmes Center here in Salisbury on Mondays and Fridays on the Hensche philosophy of color. The cost: $10.00 per 2 hour session. We have had some great dialogs and I have found the sessions extremely helpful.
Please excuse my typos... ;(
