Drawing Animals from the Collections | Watercolor Pencils: Sketching Cranes


Drawing Animals from the Collections | Watercolor Pencils: Sketching Cranes

Thursday, February 23, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

The Art Museum partners with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free virtual drawing classes. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom. With an emphasis on drawing with watercolor pencil on paper, each week’s lesson in this series will be inspired by an artwork depicting an animal in the Museum’s collections. 

This live-artmaking class is inspired by the drawing Two Cranes by nineteenth-century French painter Charles François Daubigny. In this session, we will learn how to draw two cranes as they are depicted in this artwork.

Optional materials list can be found here.

Recordings of previous art-making classes found here.

Free registration via Zoom here. (When prompted, click to sign in as “attendee.”)

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.

Para acceder a los subtítulos en varios idiomas, ingrese al seminario web de Zoom durante un evento en vivo, luego abra un navegador web separado para visitar esta página donde puede seleccionar "español" o el idioma de su elección.
