What could be more enjoyable than spending a full day sketching at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City? On Saturday November 18, Brian Bomeisler, son of Betty Edwards, will lead you through a practical, hands-on day of sketching in the galleries of this beautiful museum, and expanding upon the formal drawing instruction offered in the 5-Day DRSB Workshops. There is still time to sign up!
As a special treat, there are two wonderful drawing exhibitions on view -- From Leonardo to Matisse: Master Drawings from the Lauder Collection and Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer. Brian will teach you how to maximize your sketching techniques, and you can be inspired by some of the greatest artists who ever lived!
This one-day class was designed for anyone interested in learning sketching techniques and keeping a sketchbook. The prerequisite is to have taken the 5-Day Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain® Workshop. However, it is also open to those who already have drawing experience and training. For those students who have not taken the 5-Day DRSB Workshop, it will be especially helpful to read Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, particularly Chapters 7 and 8, before the workshop.
Join us for an intensive and fun day of drawing with an expert artist as your guide, along with fellow drawing students. The Met has a wealth of material to use as reference. They have a large number of sculptures in all galleries which are especially engaging to draw. Sketchbook drawing is an art unto itself, requiring skills that can be taught: e.g., how to hold the sketchbook, how to use the “basic unit,” how to perform “sighting” while sketching. The variety of mediums we will use include pencil, pen and ink, and a specific technique using an ordinary felt tip marker.
The cost of this One-Day Workshop is $425. Admission to the museum is included. Reservations are required in advance, so please contact Sandy Manning at email@example.com to sign up or if you have any questions.. Brian looks forward to spending a day at the Met with you! Just click to register.
