June 29 & 30
10 a.m.-4 p.m.
instructor: Mia Bergeron

Copying a masterwork is one of the best exercises one can do in their painting practice. In this two-day workshop, students will paint a copy of "Portrait of a Lady" by Kentucky-born artist, Frank Duveneck. Duveneck is one of the slightly lesser known Masters of oil painting, though loved and respected by many painters today. Born in 1848, Duveneck spent his early years studying the works of Dutch master Frans Hals, which is apparent in his large brushstrokes and love of thickly applied paint. Little is known about Duveneck's palette, so for this class, Mia has chosen to use a combination of Frans Hals' historical palette, and the colors used by Duveneck's peers at the time. Mia will spend time demonstrating, and helping students work with value, drawing, color, and mixing. We will be working from life-sized high-quality prints of Duveneck's "Portrait of a Lady." Previous familiarity with oil paints is recommended.

There will be a one-hour lunch break each day. Feel free to bring your own lunch or enjoy plenty of dining options in our southside neighborhood.
