Event Details

This drawing workshop will highlight portraits in the exhibition "Portraits of the World: Switzerland" to analyze how to draw an object that recedes into the background. Led by artist Jill Galloway, the workshop will include instruction followed by a series of drawing sessions.

Open to artists of all levels, ages 18 and up.

Materials are provided.

Because the workshop begins before the museum opens to the public, please plan to arrive at the 8th and G Street, NW entrance at 9:50 a.m. so we may begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.

Drawn to Figures workshop in this series:
July 12 and 14: Drawing Hands
July 19 and 21: Drawing Feet
July 26 and 28: Foreshortening
