Using the Museum’s collection of figurative works as a source of inspiration, explore three-dimensional form, anatomical study, and expression using a range of dry media. In the studio, analyze different ways artists depict the figure from perspective, distortion, idealization of forms, or relationship to their environment. A few sessions will draw from a live nude model.

Students are responsible for providing their own supplies. View the supply list here.
