Seniors Social: Hand to Collar to Face, the Illuminated Path in Rembrandt’s Portraits

Tuesday, March 12, 1 pm
The Dr. Anne Tanenbaum Gallery School

Make new artistic connections and spark conversations! Join us for our Seniors Social: an engaging monthly workshop series for older adults. Dive into meaningful conversations weaved with art exploration and creation. At the AGO, we believe that engaging with art and expressing creativity enhances well-being. Join the conversation and let art be your guide! 

Rembrandt was a great storyteller and an acute observer. He approached his subjects with deep sympathy and insight, capturing the passage of time in face and figure. We’ll examine the way he handles paint, balances light and shadow, and fuses detail and atmosphere to portray his sitters with compassion and create an emotionally honest tableau. This workshop combines a tour and sketching in the exhibition, with a session of drawing in the gallery school.  Presented as part of Painted Presence: Rembrandt and his Peers.
