Artist and educator May Jong conducts a six-session course focusing on ways of seeing and drawing a variety of artworks in the Museum’s collections. Students learn various drawing techniques by studying storytelling, the human figure and landscapes.
Drawing inspiration from European still-life paintings, students work outdoors to capture details of the Sculpture Garden using water-soluble graphite and color pencils.


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.
