Old Picture, New Painting

Wednesday, November 30
12-1 pm EDT
Virtual, via Zoom

In this virtual program, families and homeschool pods with children ages 4+ will explore the art of Morris Hirshfield, who launched his career with two paintings on reused canvases. Rather than entirely covering up what came before, he incorporated pieces of the previous pictures into his own work. Following in his footsteps, you will overpaint (using paint, crayons, craypas or whatever you have on hand) a preexisting image (a page from a catalogue, an earlier drawing, a post card…) to create something new!
