Studying Under Berthe Morisot with Michelle Wooderson
Join Michelle Wooderson in this master class we’ll dive into the wonderful world of Berthe Morisot, the forgotten Impressionist.
We’ll learn about her life in Paris and her relationships with the more well know Impressionists. We’ll learn from a video book tour how to identify distinguishing characteristics of Morisot’s mark making and beautiful brushstrokes and learn to incorporate them into our own work. In this study, we will explore Morisot’s pencil sketches, pastel, watercolor and oil paintings in up close detail. We’ll recreate some of Morisot’s work, adding our own unique style to make the artwork our own. We’ll recreate one of Morisot’s still life paintings, using a limited brushstroke technique that refines our painting skills. In true Morisot style, we’ll create both an oil and a watercolor study of the same scene to see if we can unify our styles between mediums. With additional portrait and value studies, we’ll round out our work in full circle, using all the mediums Morisot used in her works of art. This class will leave us with a better understanding of Morisot’s charming artwork and hopefully a desire to make further studies on our own. Lastly, we’ll have a place to share our work in a pleasant online community.
