Join artist Michelle Antonisse for a workshop exploring color, line and composition. Study the way in which Van Gogh used short, saturated lines of color to create his compositions Portrait of a Peasant, Head of a Peasant Woman in a White Bonnet and The Mulberry Tree. Discover how these elements reflect representation, mood and the artist’s process. After examining Van Gogh’s use of color and line, create a composition using colorful embroidery floss.
