Drawing from the Collections | Colored Pencils: Color Harmony

The Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online drawing classes. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom. Each week’s lesson is inspired by a work in the Museum’s collections. 

This live art-making class is inspired by Alexander Calder’s The Two Arrows. One of the foremost sculptors of the twentieth century and an important pioneer of kinetic art, Calder is celebrated for his innovative use of formal elements more traditionally associated with drawing or painting—line, color, and flat, geometric shapes—as the building blocks of his sculptures. In this session we will explore color theory, investigating primary colors, color wheels, and color schemes.
