This is a really fun and different class.Â Bestiaries were medieval books â€śexplainingâ€ť animalÂ characteristics and behaviors – many for creaturesÂ that donâ€™t actually exist! Spend a SaturdayÂ re-creating an image from a medieval bestiary usingÂ paints, pigments and gold. Weâ€™ll use the sameÂ techniques and similar materials that were used inÂ the original paintings. No “talent” required! Taught by The Abbey Studio’s lead designer, Maryanne Grebenstein. Held at The Abbey Studio & Shop, 84 Washington St., Marblehead, MA. Limited to four students.
