Sketch Workshop With Emily Hemeyer
Saturday, Sepetmber 19, 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Come draw architecture with us! You don’t have to be an artist to create an individualistic work of art. We’ll focus on looking at details as well as the whole, and creatively expressing your observations on paper. Tips, guidance, and inspiration provided by local artist and educator Emily Hemeyer.
All ages welcome! Materials will be provided (or feel free to bring your own favorites). With permission, work will be displayed at the next weekend’s event:
Greek Revival Architecture and the Chatillon-DeMenil House
Saturday, September 27 at 2 p.m.
Greek Revival became a national style that captured the political idealism of a young nation. Esley Hamilton’s illustrated talk will help us understand how the Chatillon-DeMenil House does (and doesn’t) reflect the dominant architectural classicism of the mid-19th century.
Our six-part Arts Then and Now series is made possible with the support of the Regional Arts Commission.
All events are free and open to the public.
