Wayne Art Center • 413 Maplewood Ave • Wayne • PA 19087

Creating a self-portrait is one of the most interesting and challenging forms of figurative art. Whether the likeness is absolute or just a similarity, whether detailed or very abstract, the process, though demanding, will be fun. We'll discuss technique and composition with an emphasis on color and value. Oil and/or Pastels can be used. Students may work on one image or multiple images. Individual and group critiques will be given.

Limited places available.

New Book - 'Good Old Drawing (G.O.D.)'

Anne is one of 100 artists to appear in this new book with David Hockney, Ronald Searle, and Quentin Blake (among others) - all firm believers in the power of drawing.

Introduced by Sir Nicholas Serota, director of London's Tate Gallery for the last 25 years, 'Good Old Drawing (G.O.D.)' is described as a celebration of drawing from some of Britain's most renowned, respected and loved illustrators. The authors, John Holder & Philip Hodgkinson, have thoughtfully compiled the ultimate book to celebrate and champion the most basic and yet fundamental of artistic forms which is too often neglected and disparaged in favour of flashier and more controversial alternatives. The true strengths of drawing are displayed in this varied and fabulous reference with its compulsive ability to enchant, bewitch, provoke and entertain. Anne's contribution "Beth Monaco" was originally exhibited at London's Royal Society of Portrait Painters at the Mall Galleries in London.

Set for publication Nov. 30th 2012 'G.O.D.' is now available direct from Amazon UK (or pre-order from Amazon USA where it will be available from May 14, 2013.)
