Alberto Giacometti

Portrait of Alberto Giacometti
Jan Hladík (Czech printmaker) 2002
The final class of 2017!

We are working in one of my favorite mediums this month - needle felted wool!

Ready to study something a bit more modern?  Surrealist Alberto Giacometti utilized the changing interests of the people who lived before and after the 2nd World War as a launching point for his ideas about sculpture.
