Today, many artists choose to draw from photographic images as opposed to drawing from life. Led by the Museum's Education Department, this workshop will introduce figure drawing from a flat surface versus a three-dimensional object. Inspired by current exhibition Bob Mizer: Vintage Physique, participants will sketch amidst Mizer's work upstairs in the Hartman Pavilion. All materials will be supplied. Reservation is required. Museum Members, please reserve your spot by emailing the Education Department directly.
