[Art Class at the DIA]

Description: Photograph of children's art class at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Narrative by Junebug Clark: I might be in this photo. I spent many hours and days in classes and wandering the DIA. I sat for hours studying the Dutch Master paintings there trying to figure out the different light sources the painters used to light their subjects and where they came from and how they hid those lights so they were not in the painting. I still do. Photo by Bernice Clark. Signed by: Bernice Clark Clark PhotoFile: 7069-0020-4
