Drop-in Drawing Program Goes Virtual

The Denver Art Museum's monthly Drop-in Drawing sessions are going virtual until it's safe for the museum to host these type of classes again. Anna Kaye, artist and instructor, will continue to lead the program.

May

This month's session is a video focused on drawing inspiration from a Winslow Homer painting that will be on view in Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington when the museum is able to reopen.

June

At 1 pm on June 9, Anna will lead a live Zoom discussion about collage-making. Here is what Drop-In Drawing will focus on next month:

Cut and Paste: Creating Collage

Creating collage art is a great way to repurpose and reuse a variety of materials. Find hidden treasures in your home like photographs, magazines, paper scraps, aluminum foil, candle wax, miniature figurines, and more! Feel free to make mistakes, experiment, and play with your materials while you assemble them into a layered collage. Share your collage by using the hashtag #dropindrawingDAM. Join an informal virtual discussion with Drop-In Drawing Instructor Anna Kaye and special guests from the art community to further explore your designs.

This post will be updated with information about how to sign up for future sessions. You also can get this information by signing up for our newsletter and following the Denver Art Museum on social media.
