Chats on the Past: Inside Westport’s Famous Artists School

June 25, 2021 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

Fridays are for fascinating forums! Join us for a Live discussion with the last owner of the Famous Artists School which closed in 2016, Magdalen Livesey and Stephanie Plunkett, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of the Norman Rockwell Museum, for this lively look at the inner workings of the Famous Artists School and the expert tips and advice that the founding artists enjoyed sharing with their students. Livesey and Plunkett will discuss the school and their 2017 book, Drawing Lessons from the Famous Artists School: Classic Techniques and Expert Tips from the Golden Age of Illustration. 

To watch live and ask questions, visit the museums Facebook page or YouTube channel
