Maritime Romanticism Presented by Jake Tedesco

Our second Hands on Art workshop was presented by Jake Tedesco, entitled Maritime Romanticism. 

We looked at the artwork of Ivan Aivazovsky (b1817 d1900) a famous Russian painter of Armenian origin who is often regarded as the greatest marine artist of all time.  

Jake explained that the Romanticism movement was not necessarily about romance but about creating artwork that provokes an emotional response.

We used wax pencil for the details and brought the image to life with watercolor.

Brunch was brought to us by Washington and Birney and the vendor was Melissa of Stella & Dot.
