Friday, March 3
Open to the public free of charge.
Have you ever been amazed at how differently some artists see the same subject?
Ever wonder if artists are competitive with each other?
Have you been curious about the different ways painters begin their paintings?
Art Throw Downs are fun and popular events at Townsend Atelier and we are really excited about this one–our very first Family Feud Edition!
Three very accomplished artists, who are all family members, will each create a portrait from a live model in this three-hour demonstration. Husband and wife, Daud Akhriev and Melissa Hefferlin, and their son, Timur Akhriev will go brush to brush to pastel. Both Akhrievs will be working with oil paint, while Hefferlin will be working with pastels. Watch as each artist starts, carries and refines a portrait from life to its completion.
Questions, comments, and hollering are all recommended from the audience. Stick around until the end as the paintings created during the demonstration will be auctioned at the end of the night.
Drinks will be available. Feel free to bring a sack dinner or snack if you wish!
