Claire Hardy will use the focal painting ‘Rembrandt Tulips’ as her visual aid in a discussion about Tulipmania and the lasting inspiration made by this popular perennial.  Afterwards, Carol will demonstrate a technique she has mastered known as carbon dust painting.   Finally, a guided tour of ‘The Artful Tulip’ with Claire will follow the demonstration.

Seating is limited for this Art Enthusiast Circle event.
