Artists and those who appreciate works of natural landscapes have an opportunity to discover the art of the Hudson River painters. The course is offered through community education at the Gettysburg Campus of HACC, central Pennsylvania's community college.

The Hudson River School of Landscape Artists will be offered on two Thursdays, Aug. 5 and 12, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Gettysburg Campus of HACC, 731 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg.

This course will discuss how the Back-to-Nature Movement of the 19th century inspired the glorious paintings of a new generation of artists working in America.

The Hudson River painters, inspired by the beauty of America and the romantic spirit of nature, worked together to create art worthy of a new nation, and of the beauty which lies in the human soul.

The landscape paintings will take the class on a tour of the Hudson River Valley, regions throughout America, the wilderness of the West, and the tropics of South America.

Paintings by a dozen artists including Cole, Church, Bierstadt, Lane, Heade and Durand will increase students' appreciation for the glory of the natural world.

Registration for this class and information on many other workforce training, professional development, and community education classes is available in HACC's Summer 2004 Noncredit Course Schedule at www.hacc.edu/gettysburg or by calling (717) 338-1010.
