Art Making | Drawing: Composition

The Art Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online art-making experiences. Classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom, so participants can join live from their home computers; techniques emphasize drawing with pen or pencil on paper. Each lesson features works from the Museum’s collections.

Even the most detailed drawings will suffer if the composition is not well considered ahead of time. In this session, we will look at some of the underlying grids artists use as guides and practice making compositions that take a drawing from good to great.
