Sip & Sketch—Drawing in the Galleries: The Human Form in Sculpture and Decorative Arts

Saturday, January 31, 2015, 5:00–7:15 p.m.

Barbara Woods

The Balcony Lounge Show location on map

Saturdays, January 31 and February 28, 2015, 5:00–7:15 p.m.

We are pleased to offer Members at the Sustaining ($600) level and above the opportunity to register for this special program.

Join artist and Museum Educator Barbara Woods on Saturday evenings to discover the way artists have explored the human form in sculpture, and how artists create a sense of three-dimensional space using light and shadow. Then, create your own figurative drawings.

The first session will take place in the Roman Art galleries and the second session in the European Sculpture galleries. You may sign up for one session or both; all materials will be provided. After sketching in the galleries, participants will enjoy wine and cheese in a private space in the Members Dining Room.

Participants will meet in the Balcony Lounge at 5:00 p.m. and leave promptly at 5:15 p.m. for the galleries. No experience necessary!
