Drawing at The Met
The fundamentals of observational drawing are taught on-site at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The building itself, along with the artworks, objects, and people it contain are all possible subjects for study. Basic concepts related to perspective, gesture, contour, value, and mass, are introduced and worked through in five sessions. These principles are introduced to students individually and in respect to their own stage of development. The class is suitable for absolute beginners, as well as those with previous drawing experience. Students are responsible for a museum admission fee of $5 for each session.

Drawing for Absolute Beginners

Never taken a drawing class before? Feel rusty or simply lack confidence? This course - our most popular offering - is designed for you. You'll draw from life and from art reproductions. Beginning with a simple contour, you will use line to translate a variety of shapes, from the still life to the figure. Learn to see like an artist, and to develop form and space with negative shapes, rules of perspective, and shading. Work in black and white with pencils, charcoal, and ink. This class emphasizes clear instruction and exercises that move sequentially to build new skills each week. You will receive personal, individualized feedback. Although this class is tailored toward the absolute beginner, all levels are welcome. Bring 5 sheets of 18 x 24" paper; black ebony or 2b pencil; an eraser; and $30 model fee to the first class.

From Grand Central Station, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Conservatory Garden, Greenwood Cemetery, ancient Greek and Roman sculptures at the Met, to the Fish Bar in the East Village, you will learn to take on new challenges and gain confidence in drawing.

Basic issues such as expressive mark-making, line quality, composition, atmospheric and linear perspective, proportion, value (shades of gray), and light and shadow will be reviewed and reinforced during class. You will receive personalized instruction, and you will be encouraged to push beyond your reluctance, fears, and familiar habits.
