Art Making: Drawing l Distilling Any Subject into Basic Shapes, Lines, and Angles

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.

In the first session, we will explore a very important skill that artists use whether seasoned or new to the process: finding basic shapes within complex scenes and subjects. We will also explore how to find correct angles and create a good gestural line as a foundation for a more detailed drawing.
