Join artist and author Richard E. Scott in exploring the Museum’s collections in this six-part drawing series. Working in pencil, students learn how to enhance their enjoyment of the visual arts, improve confidence in various drawing techniques and enrich their museum-going experience.
In the second session, students learn the craft of drawing and how to draw lines to express a variety of visual effects, such as contour, form and surface texture. Students apply the lesson to draw works from Giovanni Francesco Romanelli’s preparatory sketches in the special exhibition Once Upon a Tapestry: Woven Tales of Helen and Dido.
