The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Sketching the Treasures of the Habsburg Dynasty

Sunday, Aug. 2, 2015

01:00 PM – 04:00 PM

Guests can sharpen their observation skills and sketch the magnificent treasures collected by one of Europe's longest-reigning dynasties! This art-making activity is inspired by the exhibition Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna's Imperial Collections. A teaching artist is on hand with paper, pencils, and clipboards to get participants started.
