Capturing the Everyday:

This live art-making class is inspired by Mary Cassat’s Young Woman in a Black and Green Bonnet, Looking Down. One of America’s leading expatriate artists, Cassatt fully exploited pastel’s painterly and spontaneous qualities, as exemplified by this image of a fashionably dressed woman caught in a moment of repose or reverie. The artist’s bold strokes on the bonnet and colorful upholstery enliven these inanimate surfaces and offset the higher degree of finish on the woman’s face. Her concealed eyes convey a sense of psychological privacy. In this class, we will find our own everyday event to capture. Maybe it’s a pet snuggled up near us while we draw, or a family member reading a book nearby.
