Stubbs and Horse Anatomy Workshop

Would you like to paint like Stubbs? Join professional sporting artist Alice Porter in a three day art workshop to develop your skills in equine anatomy, drawing and old master painting techniques. The workshop is open to teens and adults with basic/intermediate drawing skills, and more advanced students. The workshop will take advantage of the six original Stubbs currently on view at NSLM in A Sporting Vision: the Paul Mellon Collection of British Sporting Art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts; and will also reference Stubbs anatomy books and anatomical equine specimens. The workshop will take place off-site, a guided tour of NSLM's art galleries and free admission during the workshop are included in the program. 

Materials provided. $225 plus material fee. Limited to 12 students.
