Barbara Hageman trained in classical painting and drawing techniques at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, in Old Lyme, Connecticut. In addition, Barbara holds both Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees from the University of Connecticut.
At Lyme she studied with Jerry Weiss, Peter Zallinger, Diane Aeschiliman, Nancy Gladwell, Susan Stephenson, and the late Dean Kelleher. LACFA is an NASAD, NEASC-accredited, classical art college (www.lymeacademy.edu ). From the beginning of her studies, she learned the “en plein aire” tradition of the American Impressionists who summered in Old Lyme at the Florence Griswold residence-now-museum.
