Maryhill Museum of Art holds one of the largest collections of Rodin sculpture in the Western United States. This class takes advantage of the opportunity to draw these figures and objects from the collection’s incredible sculptures and other three-dimensional objects within their permanent collection


Within the scope of modern art, from the Renaissance on, artists used sculpture to gain information for their paintings, sculpture, etc.  By drawing them, artists would gain intimate knowledge of the human form, thus arming themselves with the essential tools needed to complete other pieces.


All students will receive one free admission pass for an additional trip to Maryhill to further explore the collections. (Pass is good only through the duration of the class.)


Drawing is the foundation of art.  Whether you are a 2D or 3D artist, growing one’s skills by drawing is crucial to continuing and progressing your craft and technique.


We will use graphite, primarily, as a medium, but may dive into the world of charcoal and chalk on toned papers.
