Art Making l Drawing from the Collections: The Effects of Light

The Art Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online art-making experiences. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom, so participants can join live from home. A variety of media and techniques will be explored, using readily available materials. Each lesson features works from the Museum’s collections. This week’s class is inspired by Claude Monet’s Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge. Monet painted directly from nature, sometimes working on eight or more canvases in the same day. His project to capture shifting atmospheric conditions became a hallmark ofthe Impressionist style. In this class we will explore drawing thesame subject at different times of day, in different weather conditions, or during different times of year.
