Field trip to the MIA
Recently me and my mom took a trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art. I worked on sketching some paintings from the masters!
This was my first time sketching in a busy public place. I found it uncomfortable working with so many people talking and looking over my shoulder. I plan to practice working in public places more as I would like to be able to comfortably sketch in places other than home! It will definitely take some getting used too!
Other than that I had a really good time. I love being able to see all of those paintings in real life! We brought home some art books and a post card of (the painting you see above) "Six Tuscan Poets" By Giorgio Vasari. He painted this in 1544!
