Life drawing at the Institute is an investigation into the subject of the still-life, one of the most commonly employed genres throughout history. From the Egyptians to the Old European Masters and beyond, still-life painting has served many societal functions, whether equipping the dead with possessions needed in the afterlife, or symbolically communicating didactic messages. Please join us to discover the implications of this ancient tradition when applied to our contemporary landscape. Come prepared to draw.
Everyone is welcome – Wednesday at 7 in the lobby. We are thinking about a cornucopia theme. Hope you can make it!
