Workshop: Marie Fox: Icons and Allegories – A Pre-Raphaelite Workshop
Sept 28: 12:00 – 4:00 pm. Explore the vision, techniques and motivation behind the distinct aesthetic of the Pre-Raphaelites. Inspired by the fluid and stylized linework of Edward Burne-Jones's 1865 “Portrait of a Young Woman”, participants will sketch from a live model and, after a series of warm-ups, will create a portrait using chalk and vellum. In the spirit of the Pre-Raphaelite era, the final project will combine traditional materials with a surprise, contemporary twist. Cost: $60 non-members, $50 members. To register please call (506) 458-2028.
