Drawing Figures from the Collections | Colored Pencils: Figure Foundation


Drawing Figures from the Collections | Colored Pencils: Figure Foundation

Thursday, February 1, 2024 @ 8:00 pm

This live art-making class is inspired by a Roman-Egyptian bronze statuette of a youth. In this session, we will learn the foundations of drawing a figure.  

The Museum partners with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free virtual drawing classes, taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo. With an emphasis on drawing with colored pencils on paper, each week’s lesson in this series will be inspired by an artwork depicting a figure in the Museum’s collections.
