“Over The Top” The Art of Embellishment
Grand salons in Paris are often used as state rooms for formal receptions. To demonstrate wealth and status, the salon was typically decorated with immense mirrors, carved and gilded paneling, and sculpted reliefs.
On our tour we’ll be looking up at the lavish gilded ceilings. sparkling chandeliers, and fanciful room decor. We’ll travel from England to France viewing the spectacular period rooms at the Philadelphia Museum of Art
In the studio we’ll be going over the top! We will create our own unique rooms with glittering chandeliers, coffered ceilings and decorative floors using one or two point perspective, embossing techniques, and a variety of foils and textured papers.
