Fashion History Sketching Workshop
Instructor Joanne Murrman
Saturday | March 12
3 – 4:30 PM

Interested in how fashions have changed? What was the fashionable woman’s silhouette in the 1890s? You’ll find out by attending this lecture given by local artist Joanne Murrman. Joanne will use her own interpretive watercolor paintings and pictures of dresses in Blithewold’s extensive collection of fashions worn by Bessie Van Wickle McKee and her daughters. You will see the dramatic changes from corsets and tight-fitting bodices of the 1880s to the free-flowing flapper dresses in the 1920s and on into the 1940s. At the conclusion, you’ll have a chance to try your hand at drawing your own interpretation of one of the historical dresses.

For ages 10 –18.
