Drawing Life with Liza Donnelly from Norman Rockwell’s Studio
Air Date: October 20, 2022
An hour-long program of sketching and conversation about creative expression, the power of persuasion, and the people’s art.
Wonder. Storytelling. Human Connection. From a converted carriage barn on South Street in Stockbridge, MA, Norman Rockwell painted his way into the hearts and lives of people around the world. In this Studio—his last and “best yet”—Rockwell’s imaginative artistry established a legacy of creativity that continues to inspire artists and visitors alike. Today, illustration art is everywhere: books and graphic novels, editorials and advertising, video games and the metaverse, posters, comics, clothing, and tattoos.
This monthly series of on-demand programs features leading illustrators from across the United States demonstrating their craft and discussing ways in which published illustration reflects and shapes society, and advances social good.
