What is lawyer’s brief or a judicial opinion but a persuasion piece painted with words?   Legal artistry requires a master’s artful eye, as we paint on the readers’ cerebral and emotional canvas.  Inspiring us to see legal writing as art, accomplished attorney and artist Bruce Petrie, Jr. will teach us to see focal point, inspiration, compositional unity, balance, and craftsmanship in masterful paintings and legal writing.  Participants will examine significant art at the Taft Museum collection and significant case decisions, while learning to paint more artful legal arguments.
