Painting from the Masters


This Monday at Goldmines I rushed into the house quick and was brainstorming in my head about what would be good for the artists in the painting club to work on. Then I realized that up in my room I had brought many cards and postcards of artworks, which I intended to send as letters but these are also perfect for us to do Master Copy paintings from! So I scooped up Monet, Cassat, Van Gogh, Matisse, ect. and headed off. I think the guys really enjoyed this excersize and challenge to learn from a well-know artist by mimicing their artwork. Each picked a different painting and then fir the next 2 hours these guys were pretty much silent in concentration. It was great to see their own styles come out and hear their enthusiasm over the finished pieces. I think they will end up repeating this with another painting on Wednesday.
