Drawing Animals from the Collections | Watercolor Pencils: Depicting a Jaguar

The Art Museum partners with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free virtual drawing classes. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom. With an emphasis on drawing with watercolor pencil on paper, each week’s lesson in this series will be inspired by an artwork depicting an animal in the Museum’s collections. 

This live-artmaking class is inspired by this ceramic stirrup-spout vessel in the form of a jaguar, created by a Mochica artist on what is now the northern coast of Peru. In this session, we will draw the jaguar as it is depicted in this object.
