CAFÉ FOR CARE PARTNERS PORTRAIT PAINTING BY ARTIST PAUL DUSOLD
Paul DuSold has been teaching at Woodmere for many years and is known affectionately as the "Rembrandt of Mt. Airy." Watch the evolution of a portrait as Paul talks through his process and paints one participant (who will be sitting in his Mt. Airy studio). Observe how the painting takes shape before our eyes. At the conclusion of the program, the care partner who sits for Paul in his studio will have the privilege of taking home the portrait.
