Paint at the MET this June!

Enroll in a thirteen session MET Copying class taught by Mark Tennant. The class will meet for four weeks on Tuesday-Thursday afternoons, 12:30 - 4:30, June 5 - 28.

Copy of Murillo's Beggar Boy

Workshop Description:
Rising artists must look to the great masters of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries for guidance and make themselves familiar with the works of every school in order to cultivate their tastes and form their style. Through museum copying, the student learns to look at nature from the point of view of the best art and compare their own efforts with those that have stood the test of time; to aim at the highest. The student will not only try to see how a painter did a certain thing but why. So that as they copy, they will follow the master in the working out of the problems and, consequently, make it their problem as well. One painting will be copied over a period of twelve days at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Demonstrations and lecture will cover such topics as construction, value relationships (monochrome), warm and cool colors.
