Drawing from the Masters

Date: Friday, August 23, 2013
Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Speaker: Roderick Smith
Type: Drawing Class

Join artist Roderick Smith for a series of drawing classes inspired by master works in the Norton Simon collections, from ancient India and Southeast Asia to modern-day Europe and America. Each session follows a different path through the Museum, exploring the fundamentals of art. Examine a variety of works with the goal of understanding the essential elements of composition and design.

Using the Renaissance and Baroque collections as inspiration, reinterpret a masterpiece and create an original variation using a modern approach. The selection of works is wide-ranging, and experimentation is encouraged.
