Drawing the Norton Simon Collections: Composition

Drawing the Norton Simon Collections: Composition
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Richard E. Scott

Artist and author Richard E. Scott conducts a six-session course, drawing from a variety of masterworks throughout the Museum. Students learn drawing techniques to improve visual perception, to find their own artistic voices and to enrich their museum-going experience.

In the fifth session, drawing is explored to better understand design. Students learn the art of the thumbnail sketch as a fun way to identify appealing compositions, and then sketch European artworks from 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.
