Join artist Michelle Antonisse on Saturday, February 24 in an exploration of Rembrandt’s Self Portrait at the Age of 34, on loan from The National Gallery, London, along with the Norton Simon’s Portrait of a Boy and select etchings. Students consider how Rembrandt’s brushstrokes build up the surface of his paintings and how the rhythm he creates in his etchings affects the way we see his subjects. Inspired by Rembrandt’s process, students create their own paintings using paint markers and layers of clear film to map the journey of their compositions into final works of art.
