Art Making l Drawing from the Collections: Capturing a Winter Scene

This live art-making class is inspired by Charles Ephraim Burchfield’s Winter Rain from the East. Broadly painted in ghostly tones of gray and brown, Burchfield’s watercolors of obsolete farms and forgotten towns on the outskirts of Buffalo, New York—where the artist lived and worked—capture a poignant sense of loneliness. In this class we will focus on techniques of drawing a winter scene, including line, shadow, perspective, and tone.
