WexLab: Human Form in Modern Art

With Bryan Moss and Jean Pitman

Sat, Oct 11, 2014 11 AM4 PM

This session for youth (ages 13–18) is based on working from live clothed models. Together we’ll explore the historical context and figurative work of Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, and Jean Dubuffet, and Columbus artist/educator Bryan Moss will take you through small experimental sketches with three kinds of 2D materials: vine charcoal, ink, and paint. We’ll also view the exhibition Transfigurations: Modern Masters from the Wexner Family Collection with Wex educator Jean Pitman and talk about why the depiction of the human form is such a keystone throughout the history of art.

Space is limited to 15 youths for this session. A pizza lunch is included. For more information please contact Jean Pitman at jpitman@wexarts.org or (614) 292-4614.
