On-Site Art Parent/Child Workshops At The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Join us for parent/child drawing classes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
We will meet and explore the vast collections at the Met, starting our sessions with a visit to the stunning American wing. I will introduce you to a range of drawing exercises and share my approach and philosophy about drawing, that includes; how to hold the sketchbook, how to use the "basic unit" and how to perform "sighting". My workshops will provide drawing instruction focusing on the basics, such as expressive mark-making, line quality, composition, linear perspective, proportion, value (shades of gray), form, space, light and shadow, which will be reviewed and reinforced during class. All levels of experience are welcome. The museum's galleries offer ample choices for burgeoning artists to sharpen their talents and all will walk away from this lesson with new skills, tips, and tricks.
*You will receive a mini- tour of the galleries that we will visit.
*We will have an opportunity to visit a second gallery, either the European Sculpture room or the impressionist painting galleries.
*Sketch-book and pencil are provided for every participant.
*If you would like to register for a workshop and would like to suggest another day and time, please contact me directly. I would be happy to accommodate requests.
