Join artist Roderick Smith for a series of drawing classes inspired by master works in the Norton Simon collections, from ancient India and Southeast Asia to modern-day Europe and America. Each session follows a different path through the Museum, exploring the fundamentals of art. Examine a variety of works with the goal of understanding the essential elements of composition and design.

The first session takes place in the Indian and Southeast Asian galleries. Study figurative sculptures in clear and dramatic lighting and discover the basic shapes and forms that constitute the human figure.
