Drawing at the Norton Simon: Plant and Tree Forms

Jamie Sweetman

Artist Jamie Sweetman conducts a six-session course focusing on various areas of the Museum, from the Sculpture Garden to the European and Asian art collections. Students learn techniques like breaking down a composition into simple shapes, structuring a drawing using line and making gesture drawings.

Draw directly from the Sculpture Garden and learn how to represent the form and structure of plants and trees. Explore the drawing concepts of observation, simple shapes and positive and negative shapes to portray plants and trees.


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.
