Milwaukee Sketch Club at Corner Bakery Square in Wauwatosa 11/17/17

A nice lady sitting at a table next to us took our picture.

Terry is going to do a watercolor demo at A/C art club on April 2, 2018

We were thinking of meeting at the New Berlin Library next week at 9am on 11/30/17 Friday but Gary saw a quiet sign there. So maybe we should go someplace else where we can be our noisy, laughing, talking group. Perhaps we should return to the Corner Bakery Square?

Teachers / Students / Artist / Educators / Inventors
DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience Returns to Milwaukee
In this “tour de force” performance, ”DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience,” Mark Rodgers, Curator of the DaVinci Machines and Michelangelo Exhibitions for North America, will take the audience on an fantastic, awe-inspiring journey through the Italian Renaissance as seen through the eyes of these two, monumental geniuses.  This original theater performance is a non-stop, multi-media event featuring movies, videos, 3-D animations, and images of DaVinci and Michelangelo’s inventions, machines, sketches, codices, paintings, and sculptures.  Rodgers compares and contrasts the incredible lives of Leonardo and Michelangelo as never seen before, relating them to our world today as we strive to discover our own “inner” Michelangelo and DaVinci.
