The Magic of Miniatures Wes Siegrist at TexArt
Miniature art is not about recreating Mt. Rushmore on the head of a pin!
So what’s the BIG secret about miniature art?
It’s that most people have no idea what it really is or for how long it’s been around! At the TexArt Workshop... Wes Siegrist is going to explain why simply painting small doesn’t mean "miniature" and he’ll be sharing with you, while he demonstrates... how miniature art began in the pages of illuminated manuscripts and rose to be one of the most popular art forms of all time.
Who has to grab a ruler, scale wheel and magnifier… tiny brushes, and a razor blade too… in addition to everything else one would normally use to create their artwork? It’s the miniaturist!
You’ll learn why miniature art has more charm, enchantment and sentimentality associated with it than any other genre in art and how to implement these aspects into your own mini masterpieces.
