Description

Join the Molly Brown House Museum for an exclusive “Art with Amy” gallery talk series. Our first elevated (and virtual) conversation will feature “Lady with Parrot,” a Brown family original that hangs in the Museum’s Drawing Room. Joining Amy will be Becky Black, professor of Art History; Brian Myres, an ornithologist and professor; and Annie Willson, a professional artist and art teacher who will also create a clayboard etching art piece incorporating birds.  After the talk you can create your own clayboard art from materials and instruction available to pick up at the Museum.

A little about our Instructor Amy:
Amy has always had a love for art. She owned her own art business for years before entering art education. Amy has taught art for 19 years to all levels of students. Now she is painting as a member of Art Gym Denver and working at the Molly Brown House Museum. “I found my heart in my art. It all started with a psychic reading! The psychic stated that I was going to find my artistic expression and that it would be “free and uninhibited.” After painting in a controlled way for most of my life, that sounded very appealing. Color started to come forward in my painting. Color has always been captivating to me and I have been told I have a gifted eye for it. Color propelled me into action. Paint subjects you love. By following my intuition splashing, dripping and varying my brush strokes, I created art I truly love.” – Amy Marsh
