Drawing from the Collections | Colored Pencils: Saturated and Unsaturated Color

Thursday, June 9, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

The Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online drawing classes. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom. Each week’s lesson is inspired by a work in the Museum’s collections. 

This live art-making class is inspired by Kubo Shunman’s 窪俊満 Horned Owl on Flowering Branch. A horned owl sits on a branch covered with embossed, lightly colored magnolias in bloom. In this session, we will consider different techniques to control the saturation of color in our work.

This event will include live closed captions in both English and Spanish. English captions are available directly in the Zoom toolbar by clicking the "CC" icon. To access Spanish-language captioning, open Streamtext, where you can select “Spanish” to see the live captioning.
