Draw Like Tiepolo
2-Session Daytime Workshop
Tuesday, October 15 and 22, 2019 - 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
"Psyche Transported to Olympus", by Giambattista Tiepolo (The Morgan Library & Museum)
Giambattista Tiepolo (1696–1770), perhaps the greatest Italian Rococo painter, is best known for large-scale wall and ceiling frescoes featuring airy, light-filled visions of mythology and religion. Not as well known are his pen and wash drawings done as preparatory compositions for murals or as gesture drawings.
In this 2-session workshop, students begin by drawing from the master’s works to help them grasp the idea of gesture, movement, and the grouping of figures. They end by applying their new Tiepolo-inspired skills to contemporary images. The workshops comprise lecture, demonstration, and one-on-one instruction. All skill levels welcome.
All supplies provided.
