Art Appreciation/Art History: Looking at Pictures with Wine and Lee (1x monthly)
Tuesday evenings monthly, 7:00 - 8:30pm
January 28, February 25 and March 24
A lively monthly participatory discussion comparing and contrasting master paintings via their thematic content and pictorial structure. Many paintings discussed are housed at the National Gallery of Art or other DC museums and can be viewed before or after the discussion. Valuable lessons in how to look at paintings will be held through congenial conversation over a glass of wine with WSS founder, artist and teacher Lee Newman.
