To raise awareness and funds for the restoration they will conduct a master class for all ages at the Morris Jumel Mansion, where you will learn a bit about the great tradition of reproduction by apprentices, the scandal of forgeries, and the science of restoration, while creating your very own version of a Madame Jumel Portrait! While all ages are encouraged to experiment with collage, pastels, and other drawing materials, special color-in templates will available for our youngest of artists. Immediately following the studio there will be cocktails for parents and patrons and refreshments for the young at heart to be capped off by a live auction of the original works of art! Buy your own or someone else’s masterpiece!
Tickets are $15 per adult, $5 for children and advanced registration is required. Call 212 923 8008.
