“Sketching in Baghdad”
Steve Medeiros, Special Veterans Day Artist Lecture
“Sketching in Baghdad” will be a talk relaying Steve Medeiros’ personal perspective on how art changed and evolved throughout his life so far. Being his constant companion in childhood, pausing in adulthood and subsequently reigniting during his Military Service. He will recount observations of Army life and serving in a combat zone.
The artist will also discuss how his experience of atelier training at The Academy of Realist Art Boston has elevated his painting from being a mere hobby to a meaningful creative outlet.
