6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
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 fourth session, students learn how Renaissance masters achieved the illusion of depth in their paintings. They incorporate these insights to effectively draw perspective in works from the 14th to 18th centuries.


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.
