What you'll learn in this on location drawing class:

Learn to draw in just two hours. Can’t draw a straight line? Used to love to draw (20 years ago) and feel a bit rusty? Then this class is for you. 

Everyone can draw, including you. Tap into your inner-artist in this encouraging, non-judgmental drawing class as you:

  • Relax and enjoy the magical medium of drawing
  • Get inspired by the stunning scenery of Central Park from within the walls of the renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • Feel nurtured as you learn, explore and practice drawing techniques such as composition, shading, depth, line, dimension, and your own unique self-expression
  • Receive one-on-one expert art instruction
  • Enjoy the Roof Garden Martini Bar or Great Hall Balcony Bar for live music and drinks on your own after your drawing class (optional, not included in class)
  • Receive the health benefits of drawing, such as deep relaxation, stress release, increased memory and focus, and of course, enjoyment

Students that were "total beginners" from our past drawing class experiences created incredible drawings right away.

The museum entrance fee is also included.

Meeting Location and Time: Group meets at flowered pot next to the group desk in THE GREAT HALL 15 minutes before class start time. Latecomers will find group at Temple of Dendur in Egyptian Wing.

A: Yes, rooms are air conditioned when appropriate.

Q: Can I bring a friend to accompany me and watch?

A: No, unfortunately the class has limited space and all seats must be paid for.

Q: What is the dress code for this class?

Lovely intro class with a friendly, knowledgable instructor. The Saturday crowds at the Met receded into the background as we focused on contour, light and shading, and learned some techniques for pencil control. First hour was instruction and exercises, and in the second hour we put our new knowledge into practice as we went into the galleries to draw from observation, as the instructor went around to each of us offering suggestions and comments, atelier-style.
