We will meet and explore the vast collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We will start by visiting the stunning American wing where I will introduce you to a range of drawing exercises and share my approach and philosophy to drawing; how to hold the sketchbook, how to use the "basic unit" and how to perform "sighting". The museum's galleries offer ample choices for burgeoning artists to sharpen their talents and all will walk away from this lesson with new skills, tips, and tricks. All levels of experience are welcome. My workshops will provide drawing instruction focusing on the basics, such as expressive mark-making, line quality, composition, linear perspective, proportion, value (shades of gray), light and shadow, which will be reviewed and reinforced during class.
I am an established artist and educator and I reside in NYC. I received my MFA from Yale University. I have been teaching art to adults and children for over 20 years. Recently I returned from teaching abroad at an American school in Athens, Greece. My practice as an artist is influenced by my surroundings, nature, travel, and my interest in other cultures. I have always utilized drawing as a way to record and connect to my surroundings. I enjoy facilitating new approaches to drawing, and helping those discover new skills, tips, and the pure joy of drawing what you see.
1 ticket Included, Strathmore Drawing Pad, drawing pencil, eraser.
The American Wing Garden Court is spacious, and has a wonderful array of Neoclassical and Beaux-Arts sculptures. We will then have a chance to visit and draw from the European Sculpture room, gaining an overview of the progression of artistic styles from the Renaissance through the early 20th century. If time allows, we will visit the Asian Art Wing, focusing on the sculpture of India, and visiting the Temple room and rock garden.
