A DANGEROUS WOMAN Subversion & Surrealism in the Art of Honoré Sharrer
Katy Schneider, artist/guest instructor
Join artist Katy Schneider to learn or polish sketching and drawing skills and participate in a facilitated discussion and drawing exercises designed to encourage careful looking at Honoré Sharrer’s work. Explore gesture, proportion, perspective and volume while working from a nude model as well as Sharrer's paintings.
Katy Schneider teaches drawing and painting at Smith College. She is a recipient of a Guggenheim and an N.E.A. fellowship, and awards from the National Academy of Design and the Academy of Arts and Letters.
