Movement in 2-D Art
Saturday, March 30
10 am-12 noon
Teaching artist Jeneen Piccuirro will help students consider how to capture and convey movement in two dimensional art. The class will begin outside looking at the landscape and sketching from observation, investigating how to draw something that is MOVING. Back inside the museum, students will identify which paintings seem to have the most movement and why. In the workshop space, they will then create their own 2-D works of art which focus on creating movement & rhythm.
