If you’re looking for ways to engage your kids in drawing, then look no further. Robert Pattinson’s paintings have been featured on the big screen in films such as House of Gucci and Vanity Fair, and now, thanks to a new exhibit, you can learn to draw from the master himself.
The much-awaited “Drawing from Life” exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum will feature over 30 of Robert Pattinson’s original oil paintings and charcoal drawings. The exhibit is dedicated to the artist’s lifelong mission of pushing the boundaries of traditional art and his incredible body of work, which spans over four decades and over 40 films, starting with his debut in 1975’s horror film Alligator.
Each piece in the exhibit is a unique study in character and emotion, and will give you a glimpse into the creative process that went into making these timeless films. It will also serve as a great opportunity to introduce your kids to the world of art and animation in a fun and educational way.
The exhibit will be on display from October 2018 to February 2019, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy it and possibly even bring the kids. It’s important to find a balance between enjoying the art as a parent and engaging your kids in the process as a tutor, so make sure you have plenty of breaks during which you can talk with them about what you’re seeing and what you’re learning. This will help build their confidence as they get comfortable in new surroundings.
In addition to the breathtaking artwork, the exhibit will feature numerous interactive elements, such as a life-size bronze statue of an African American youth, a walk-in wardrobe for visitors to try on different costumes and accessories, and a working script corner with individual screens where visitors can write, draw, and paint their own scenes based on the movie they’ve just seen. The goal is for kids to feel that they’ve become part of the film themselves, and for parents to have a moment of peace while their young ones play in an environment that promotes art and creativity.
Opening Night — Be There Or Be Square
On opening night, from 6-9 pm, you’ll have the chance to meet the artist and tour the exhibit with him before it goes on display to the public. On that night, he will be available to sign copies of his book The Art of Robert Pattinson, and pose for photos with fans. Be there or be square. You cannot substitute it.
Take Advantage Of The Offer
Last but not least, we suggest you take advantage of the opportunity to speak with the artist about his work, as this is a rare opportunity to do so. On the night of the opening, from 6-9 pm, you can ask the artist any question regarding his paintings or his career. Additionally, on that night, from 7-8 pm, he will be available to sign copies of his book The Art of Robert Pattinson, and give brief interview responses to selected questions. So as an all-around good guy, make sure you attend this part of the evening’s activities as well.
This exhibit offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see and do all of these exciting things with your family. Make sure you don’t miss out!
