Spring 2017 Curriculum

Classical Architecture and Art: Gallery Tour and Sketching Workshop

In this one-day workshop, students will explore classical architecture through free-hand drawings, focusing on details, proportions, and the use of perspective. The workshop will begin with a brief tour of the museum, using the collections and the building itself to illustrate essential aspects of classical architecture and its relationship to the other arts.  Drawings, paintings, sculpture, furniture, and architectural fragments throughout the Museum will serve as study subjects, enabling students to experience and understand the rules and principles of classicism. Supplies will be provided.
