Master Copying Class at the National Gallery

This summer, the New York Academy of Art will be offering its popular “Copying the Masters” class, usually held at the Metropolitan Museum, at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Students taking this class will have unprecedented access to the one of the world’s most comprehensive and prestigious art collections. The Collection includes Ginevra de’ Benci  the only portrait by Leonardo da Vinci in North America, Raphael's  Alba Madonna,  Titian's  Venus with a Mirror, and  Jan van Eyck's  The Annunciation, as well as works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Rodin and Degas. As with our “Copying the Masters” class, students will study techniques used by painters throughout history and learn how to adopt these methods into their own practice, under the instruction of Academy faculty member Joao Brandao. Students will have exclusive access to the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA) and the National Gallery’s Conservation Lab, and admittance to the extensive Art Materials Collection containing more than 21,000 items. This is a rare opportunity and we expect places to fill fast! Application deadline is due by June 15th. 

Please note: as the National Gallery is part of the Smithsonian Institution, an official background check is required upon registration. For more information, contact John Volk at 212-842-5968 or jvolk@nyaa.edu.
