Expressing Light
Monday, February 21, 2011, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Ages 9th grade through adult

Rachel Sawan White, Art and Design Faculty, Orchard House School
This workshop is an exploration of light and its effects on a piece of artwork. Looking at Impressionist and Post-Impressionist work we spend the day seeing color afresh and creating art in which light is a major factor. Participants create two still life paintings, one with the objects as they appear naturally and one with the same objects completely white. Different lighting is explored and discussed.

This program has been organized by the VMFA Office of Statewide Partnerships and is supported by the Paul Mellon Endowment.

Workshop Cost: $20 members/UMW staff; $25 non-members. To register, please contact Education Coordinator Michelle Crow-Dolby at 540/654-1851.
