January 14 (The Light Show, level 3) - In celebration of Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature, each participant will receive a photograph illustrating a section of one of his iconic paintings. Participants will piece together their sections to reveal the entire composition. Our session will culminate in a discussion of Monet's intentions, narratives, and our perceptions of his painting.
February 11 (Treasures of British Art, level 2, with a focus on William Marlow’s Vesuvius, 1768) - We will explore the human form with a costumed live model in Treasures of British Art, a groundbreaking exhibit that includes a renowned group of portraits from the Tudor era. Participants will have the opportunity to use a variety of drawing tools to enhance hand-eye coordination while exploring dynamic human gestures and movements.
March 10 (The Light Show, level 4, using the Hayagriva Mandala as inspiration) - A mandala is a geometric design that represents self-expression, personal transformation, and connection. Profound symbols and narratives can be found within their intricate patterns. Create your own mandala with drawing tools to activate your creativity and explore this ancient design.
April 14 (Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, level 1) - With drawing tools we will use Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington as inspiration to explore "an era of growing industrialization and notions of the closing of the American western frontier."
May 12 (Norman Rockwell: Imagining Freedom, level 2) - Through drawing we will examine the accomplished paintings of renowned illustrator Norman Rockwell's renderings of "everyday community and domestic life through universally beloved subjects that helped Americans rally for the defense of public freedoms."
