3D: Illusions of Depth Online Workshop
February 20 at 9:30 am - 11:30 am$35
Have you ever wondered how artists can give a painted landscape depth or make an orange in a still-life look truly spherical? Artists use a familiar set of techniques such as vanishing points, occlusion, and atmospheric perspective to communicate depth and dimension that are all based on how our brains interpret visual scenes. In this workshop, we will try these techniques for ourselves while also learning why they work.
Taught by Vermont teaching artist and science writer Rachel Mirus. Hosted by the Harvard Museum of Natural History. The group will be limited to 12 participants, allowing ample time for individual feedback. All skill levels are welcome. $30 members/ $35 nonmembers.
