What you'll do

Neosurrealism 2 Day Weekend Workshop with Artist Anne Faith Nicholls The Palm Springs Art Museum January 19-20, Saturday & Sunday 10am-2pm. Join acclaimed Neosurrealist painter Anne Faith Nicholls for a creative exploration of Surrealism, from its history to its exciting resurgence in New Contemporary Art—to your easel! We will use Salvador Dalí’s “50 Secrets of Magical Craftsmanship” to inspire the subconscious and your art practice. We will also re-examine Frida Kahlo and René Magritte’s portraits for hidden messages, and get up-close and personal to some of the Palm Springs Art Museum’s more mysterious works. Over the course of this workshop, you will explore symbolism and context to create your very own René Magritte-style painting in the Museum’s studio classroom, while learning unique acrylic painting techniques and trade secrets taught by the artist. This workshop will be a fun, interactive and creative way for anyone to explore art, with special access to the the world famous Palm Springs Art Museum and it's collection. Additionally, those who book here will receive a special signed, archival print by the artist!
