Illustrator Dan Howe To Present
Series of Painting Demonstrations at Norman Rockwell Museum

Stockbridge, MA, November 1, 2016—Norman Rockwell Museum will present “Painting Like Rockwell,” an ongoing series of narrated painting demonstrations with illustrator Dan Howe, starting Saturday, November 5, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Howe will demonstrate Norman Rockwell’s process for creating a painting image during this live event, bringing the step-by-step technique of the beloved American illustrator to light. Future demonstration dates will include Saturdays, December 3, January 7, and February 4. The events are each free for Museum members, or included with regular Museum admission.

Dan Howe is a contemporary realist painter and illustrator who has embraced the techniques of illustration’s Golden Age, as exemplified by the art of Harvey Dunn, Mead Schaeffer, Andrew Loomis, and Tom Lovell (who he studied with in New Mexico). He has created artworks for publishers, corporations, public institutions, and private collectors. As a student at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, where he also taught, Howe drew much inspiration from the city’s grand architecture and history. Characterized by a strong focus on the structural patterns and atmospheric effects created by light and shadow, Howe’s art employs rich tonal harmonies and dramatic perspectives to establish a sense of illusionistic reality.
