Limited to 12. Beginning students learn how to draw using the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art as subject matter. Working from a different artwork or artifact each week, the course covers the fundamental principles and techniques of drawing, including basic gestural studies, learning how to see form, and experimenting with different kinds of mark making and materials. The setting and the small size of the class allow for instruction geared to the specific needs of individual students. Bring an all-purpose sketch pad and a pencil to the first session. The first session meets at the Group Registration desk in the lobby of the Metropolitan Museum, Fifth Avenue and 82nd Street.
