The class will gather at the beginning and end of each session in the café of the Met to plan and review their artwork. There will be talks about old master’s techniques and contemporary concepts of art ranging from traditional, historic, realistic, Hudson Valley, impressionist and abstract approaches to human, animal and landscape subjects. Students can choose to draw inside the museum or outside in the park or the zoo. What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon in the summer! Admission to the Museum is free.
