Classes and Workshops


Admission actions

Six Thursdays: November 2–December 14 (no class on November 23)

Multi-session sketch classes offer the chance to draw in the museum's galleries under the guidance of experienced instructors. All materials will be provided.

Experiment with color! Inspired by modern art in the collection, participants will focus on using color symbolically rather than naturalistically and explore how color can help communicate complex ideas that are emotional, psychological, and political.
