Join this session to use the Masters of Art History as a resource for painting ideas!
The Masters of Art History gave us beautiful work to experience … and great inspiration for work of our own. Have you ever looked at an old master painting and envisioned it in a more contemporary setting? Do you think it would be a fun challenge to replicate that image? Maybe alter the color palette or merge multiple paintings? This class will begin with ways to jumpstart creative options. Once a master painting is chosen, we will look at ways to merge your vision with the original master’s work. This class is not intended as a lesson in forgery but a way to be inspired, intrigued and engaged in new, exciting ways. Come have fun and see if you can fool the viewer with your copy or your reinvented masterpiece! (Note: Only work in the public domain will the focus of this class.)
