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.
Look at Francisco de Zurbarán’s Still Life with Lemons, Oranges and a Rose, and then draw from a still life of artificial fruits using horizontal and vertical lines, comparative observation and angles.
