The Kiss: Master Copy Virtual Workshop with Kathleen Marquis
11 a.m. Wednesdays via Zoom: January 27, February 3, February 10
Registration Deadline: January 18 - Click HERE to register
This virtual workshop series will involve recreating Gustav Klimt’s painting, The Kiss, as well as a discussion of the historical context of the painting; information regarding copyright, public domain, and free use of imagery; and an introduction to online resources. Through a guided process using a superimposed grid over a print of The Kiss, students will learn how to recreate the painting, one square at a time. In addition to learning this square by square rendering method, techniques such as painting light washes, proportions, collage, and speckle effect will be covered.
Why do a master copy? A master copy is a form of meditation on a work of art. It is an opportunity to contemplate the work methodically, inch by inch, paying close consideration to the artistic decisions made by the master who created it. As you focus on these individual choices, you will gain a greater appreciation for what went into the work. Ideally through emulating the artistic practices applied, you will inherit new skills to later adapt into your own works and style.
Each of the one-hour Zoom sessions will include the opportunity for reflection and discussion with the instructor and classmates. This workshop is appropriate for beginning-intermediate students. Most supplies are included; students are responsible for providing some supplies (see below). *Supply shipping is available for students in the United States.
