Rose Frantzen

Join us at the Iowa State Historical Museum in Des Moines, Iowa, June 9th and 10th from 1 - 4 pm each day to see Rose painting alla prima portraits. These demo sessions are free and open to the public.
Portrait Painting Workshops in Maquoketa, Iowa
These five-day intensive workshops focus on alla prima portrait painting in oil and are held in Rose's studio. Rose gives a portrait demonstration on the first day. During the next 4 days, participants paint two portraits, with two models posing for two days each. We attempt to cover all aspects of portrait painting, from palette choices to drawing to seeing and capturing the colors and forms we see in the models, all the while attempting to maintain a critical and patient eye.
During her workshops, Rose often assists students with their paintings and welcomes discussions on art, being an artist, and how we see ourselves in relationship to the creative experience. For workshops held in Maquoketa, participants often have meals together in Maquoketa and surrounding towns, continuing the discussion and camaraderie. Rose and her husband, artist Charles Morris, also offer a tour of Old City Hall Gallery. Rose's parents, Wayne and Ellen will welcome and assist throughout the week.

Dates for the next workshop TBA.
