Time : 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Teacher : Adam Harrison
Type : Adult Drawing Class
Artist Adam Harrison invites artists of all skill levels to join him in an investigation of the elements of design found in the Museum’s collection. Looking at paintings from the 20th century, learn how Henri Matisse, Richard Diebenkorn and Georges Braque created their master works through an extremely refined and studied use of these fundamentals of picture-making. Participants come to understand the basics of color, shape and line, in order to create original compositions in the galleries.
In a culmination of the three previous lessons, participants combine color, shape and line to create contrast. Inspired by Georges Braque’s paintings, use a variety of media to produce an artwork that exaggerates the graphic element of contrast.
All levels of experience are welcome. Each class is $20 ($16 members), and space is limited to 18 participants. All materials and admission to the galleries on the day of class are included. Online registration is required.
