Come celebrate the holiday season at this annual favorite event. Enjoy warm beverages, tasty treats, and local music in the garden at the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters. The house will be open for tours, offering a unique evening experience. Visitors also will have a chance to see the newly reinstalled Boys’ Bed Chamber, made possible through the sponsorship of the Friends of the Owens-Thomas House.
What a person wears tells a story. From the choice of specific attire, colors, accessories, and fabrics to the way in which someone inhabits their clothes (comfortably, stiffly, self-consciously …), we find clues that chronicle the nature of the person in front of us, both on the superficial societal level and on the deeper psychological level. In this workshop, we’ll be working on one long pose with an elegantly dressed model (with a twist!) to find/create their story.
