Drawing from the Collections | Colored Pencils: Mark Making
The Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online drawing classes. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom. Each week’s lesson is inspired by a work in the Museum’s collections.
This live art-making class is inspired by Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s Seated Male Nude. Here, through Bernini's economical handling of red and white chalks, surface and contour are expressively transformed by flickering light and surrounding atmosphere. In this session, we will explore mark-making while drawing a figure. We will experiment with smooth and expressive pencil marks.
