Real and Imagined: A Master Painting Class with Illustrator Gregory Manchess
January 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop has been filled to capacity. You can still add your name to the waiting list by contacting the Museum at 413.931.2221 or register@nrm.org. We may be hosting this workshop again soon, so stay tuned!

The award-winning illustrator, known for his work for National Geographic and the new Coen Brothers film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, believes in communicating emotionally with the viewer through his art. Manchess will lead participants in an exploration of the art of realist painting inspired by the imagination, as shown in his first fully painted novel Above the Timberline, the subject of the Museum’s current exhibition. Light and shadow, color strategies, figure construction, and tonal design will be discussed and demonstrated, and all levels are welcome. Admission to the one day art workshop is $45, $35 for Museum members, and advance registration is required.
