Gallery Drawing Family Workshop: Depicting Reality: Portrait and Space

Gain confidence and learn useful strategies to draw the human figure as we explore portraiture and human expression.

Young artists are invited to strengthen their observational drawing skills and build their portfolios while exploring works of art in the Walters’ collection. Participants will have an opportunity to think creatively and express their personal voices while drawing in the galleries. This family-oriented workshop is designed for kids and their favorite adults to enjoy together. Led by a museum educator who is a practicing artist, each month will focus on a different skill and theme. Materials are provided. Beginners welcome!

Sign-up for all four Spring 2015 workshops and receive a drawing kit to take home.

Recommended for ages 9–13. One adult chaperone is required for every two participants.

Pre-registration is required. When enrolling online, please include participating child's name and age. Please refrain from bringing unregistered siblings.
