Drawing Figures from the Collections | Colored Pencils: Focus on Portraiture


Drawing Figures from the Collections | Colored Pencils: Focus on Portraiture

Thursday, February 15, 2024 @ 8:00 pm

This live art-making class is inspired by Walter Fryer Stocks’s chalk drawing Mrs. Fanny Eaton. In this session, we will focus on drawing a portrait.  

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. 

Watch the recorded drawing class here.
