This special Winter Workshop series of DC Sketchers classes will be held at the National Gallery of Art on the National Mall. While investigating the museum’s collection of paintings and sculpture, students will be led through a series of exercises that develop the perceptual skills needed to draw what you see. Using the museum’s visual resources as subject and content, you will learn to see with sensitivity, draw with accuracy and begin to understand the organizing principles of masterworks on paper and canvas.
Register for 4 sessions for $120 by visiting www.chaw.org or calling 202.547.6839. You can also drop-in for $35 per class by contacting Victor (no later than Noon on the Friday before class) at 202.547.6839 or at victor@CHAW.org.
