Richard Scott

Join artist and author Richard E. Scott in exploring the Norton Simon’s collections and Sculpture Garden. Working in pencil, students learn how to look with an artist’s eye, gain confidence in a variety of mark-making techniques and enrich their museum-going experience.

In the fifth session, students learn how to analyze and understand the designs of masterworks through compositional sketches. They use these techniques to draw works in the 19th-century collection.


All levels of experience are welcome. Each class is $25 ($20 for members), and space is limited to 20 participants. All materials and admission to the galleries on the day of class are included.
