The AVS art teachers, Annie Kyle and Katherine Stark hosted an amazing and enlightening event on the evening of October 22nd called A Very Spooky Drink & Draw: Figure Drawing To a Reading of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven.”
The evening kicked off with a cocktail hour including light refreshments, wine and spirits. Annie and Katherine pulled out all the stops, transforming the AVS stage with an eerie black and white backdrop in the illustration style of Edward Gorey, striking models (aka drama teachers, Katie and Sarah and friends) dressed as characters from Poe’s poem, “The Raven,” and a pianist played mysterious period music, adding to the ghostly ambiance.
It was a full house of parents and staff from all grades who were interested in learning the basics of figure drawing using charcoal. Keep an eye open for future inspiring workshops hosted by our awesome art teachers!
