 Creative Escape Workshops
Four Fun Art Sessions for Adults

CHADDS FORD, PA, April 1, 2013 - Brandywine River Museum offers four "Creative Escapes" for adults who want to nurture their artistic talent during a special series this spring and summer. Each evening is different and begins with a guided gallery tour introducing a theme. Participants then create their own art.

April 10 "Focus on the Big Picture"
Learn about an artist's creative process through a tour of the exhibition, Andrew Wyeth's "Ides of March:" The Making of a Masterpiece. Afterwards, generate ideas for your own masterpiece by sketching a series of charcoal and oil pastel still-life studies.

May 15 "Portrait Potpourri"
Investigate the wide variety of portraits in the museum's collection. Then develop your own approach and style by creating portrait drawings and collages.

June 19 "Building Imagination"  Discover the compelling combination of the old and new architecture of the Brandywine River Museum. Next, learn to draw interesting angles and curves contained in the structure.

July 17 "Landscape Inspiration"  Journey through the exhibition Rockwell Kent, Jamie Wyeth and Monhegan and see how artists have found inspiration in specific locales. Then, express yourself by capturing the Brandywine landscape in watercolor.

The cost per program is $20 ($16 for members) and includes art materials. Register for these programs online or by phone at 610-388-8326.
