About the Workshop
Join DukeCreate, Mi Gente, and VisArts, at our final “Paint Like” offering of the Spring semester!
Romero Britto is a Brazilian artist and sculptor. His works are noted for their bold patterns and vibrant colors that combines elements of cubism, pop art, and graffiti painting. In this workshop we will create a beautiful rendering of one of his works using paint and canvas.
