Join master draftsman Frederick Brosen for an exploration of the techniques used by artists of the nineteenth-century Golden Age of Danish painting. At the time, a flourishing of nationalistic pride enticed Danish artists to celebrate their immediate surroundings. In preparation for finished studio work, they often used toned papers, pencil, and wash to record local nature firsthand outside. The result was a flowering of Romantic and uniquely intimate imagery. In this workshop, hear a brief talk about works of art featured in the exhibition Beyond the Light: Identity and Place in Nineteenth-Century Danish Art, then, see some of the works on view in the galleries. Back in the Studio, learn from an in-depth demonstration in drawing technique, after which you can try your own hand at copying selected works in the exhibition. All materials are provided. 

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Beyond the Light: Identity and Place in Nineteenth-Century Danish Art.

Fee: $95. Please note: Space is limited; advance registration is required. Registration closes on Friday, March 24, 2023, or when registration is full.

Masks are strongly recommended. See our visitor guidelines.
