Many of Margaretta’s paintings include dolls and toys. Why did she pick them? What did they mean to her? How did she organize them? Explore these questions in this adult workshop led by the Art Students League of Denver (ASLD). Bring five objects that are meaningful to you, including a piece of fabric or an article of clothing, and let’s draw a table top still-life.
ASLD is proud to partner with BMoCA in support of Flying in the Hands of Time, A Retrospective, celebrating the work of artist Margaretta Gilboy, with a series of workshops that will allow participants to deeply explore Gilboy’s artistic vision. All will be taught by ASLD faculty member Sandra Kaplan, Gilboy’s long-time friend and close artistic peer.
