When examining a portrait, what can we learn about both the subject and the artist? American artist Andrew Wyeth painted many portraits over his 75-year career and often painted friends and neighbors. Though Andrew Wyeth is known as a realist painter, his personal perspective and worldview shaped his representation of his subjects.
In the morning, immerse yourself in the special exhibition Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect and build skills in teaching from images. After the interactive gallery experience, participants will explore portrait painting techniques with a local artist and build new classroom curriculum connections. This workshop is open to educators of all levels and subjects. Registration includes free resources, entrance to SAM’s galleries, and six (6) Washington State Clock Hours.
This workshop is now full. To be added to a waitlist, please email EducatorPrograms@SeattleArtMuseum.org.
