Online Class: Introduction to Drawing

  • Monday, March 20
  • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM MT
  • Online

Space is limited, registration required. Please email or call 505.946.1000 for assistance with event registration.

This class will focus on process and exploration informed by O’Keeffe’s sketchbook studies and pencil drawings. We will learn how to create sketchbook studies as part of the artistic practice. We invite you to engage in wonder and fascination with your chosen subject matter as we learn how to find a drawing composition through loose sketching. With an emphasis on looking with care and curiosity, the workshop will involve several short studies from life followed by a longer, more in-depth drawing from life. 

This class is suitable for participants 16 and up. 

This program will take place via the video conferencing platform Zoom. Details for accessing the Zoom meeting will be sent to participants by email the day before the class takes place. Please register in advance in order to access the program. 

Note that all program times are in Mountain Time Zone.

Supplies you will need for this class:
