Workshop: Saturday, August 5 from 3-5pm

Brush up on your drawing skills in a free workshop led by Sedrick Huckaby, a 2019 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition finalist and artist featured in “Kinship.” While exploring figurative abstraction and portraiture, learn how to create and deconstruct figures. We will use pastels and oil sticks to capture the balance between representation and abstraction.

Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery is located at 8th St NW & G St NW.
