The Art Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online art-making experiences. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom, so participants can join live from their home computers; techniques emphasize drawing with pen or pencil on paper. Each week’s lesson features works from the Museum’s collections and relates to the Museum’s weekly online curatorial lecture.

This week’s lesson, inspired by photographs in the exhibition Life magazine and the Power of Photography and the 5:30 lecture The Female Gaze; Life Magazine, Gender and World War II by Alissa Schapiro, will focus on drawing hands.
