Painting Explorations: LOVERS
Some of our greatest artworks are inspired by a range of imagined, fierce, unrequited, true, LOVERS! The smoldering portrait The Marchesa Casati by Augustus John (a lover), for example, is one of the most famous portraits of her, located amongst the AGO’s Modern Collection Galleries. Our new exhibition, Mitchell/Riopelle: Nothing In Moderation, examines the respective artistic careers of these Modern artists in terms of their relationship. This workshop explores the expressive representations of love, and invites participants to create a new portrait work dedicated to their significant other. Enter the studio with your romantic muse in tow, and add your own artwork in homage to love.
Materials for the first class are provided. Students will be working with acrylic paint and will receive a list of required materials for the following classes.
