Lexington workshop puts pen to paper

July 27, 2012 by  

Tomorrow, July 28, another session of Mindful Drawing will take place at Loudoun House located at 209 Castlewood Drive in Lexington, Kentucky. This event will begin at around 8:30 am.

This Mindful Drawing Workshop will enable Lexington Art League (LAL) members and non-members to receive instruction under the guiding hands of renowned artist Melissa Vandenberg. Guests to attend this workshop will draw scenes from life outdoors at Loudoun House using a selection of different media. While drawing, participants will be encouraged to focus and relax using meditation and observation. Abstract art and realism are encouraged through an alert, restful, open, and creative practice.

Loudoun House is home to the LAL and was recently renamed to Castlewood Park. The LAL offices are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Loudoun House is one of the biggest and most pristine Gothic Revivals in Kentucky. It dates back to the 1850s Romantic Movement and reflects the elegance and social extravagance of the era. The home was designed by Alexander Jackson Davis, a New York architect, and was built by John McMurtry, who constructed over 200 buildings in the Gothic Revival style. Additional information about Loudoun House can be obtained from the Lexington Art League.

Brochure printing and poster printing may have been used to promote this workshop to artisans. Admission to this event is $85 for LAL non-members and $70 for members. Further information about this event can be found at the Lexington Art League’s website or by calling 859-254-7024.
