Drawing Landscapes from the Collections | Watercolors: Rendering Foliage


Drawing Landscapes from the Collections | Watercolors: Rendering Foliage

Thursday, June 8, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

The Museum partners with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free drawing classes, taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom. With an emphasis on drawing with watercolor on paper, each week’s lesson in this series will be inspired by an artwork depicting a landscape in the Museum’s collections, inspired by the exhibition Traces on the Landscape at Art on Hulfish. 

This live art-making class is inspired by this landscape painting by Zhang Daqian. In this session, we will paint our own version of Daquian’s painting while focusing on rendering foliage.

Additional support for this program has been provided by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
