Virtual Art-Making Session with the Princeton University Art Museum: Unique Cropping

- Free and open to the public!

The Arts Council is partnering with the Princeton University Art Museum to provide free online art-making experiences. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom, so participants can join live from home. A variety of media and techniques will be explored, using materials readily available. Each week’s lesson features works from the Museum’s collections and is introduced by an Art Museum Student Tour Guide.

This live art-making class is inspired by Edward Hopper’s Universalist Church. In this partial view of an eighteenth-century Universalist church in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Hopper shows only the elegant white spire, obscuring the rest of the building with intervening houses. The lines of the roofs adjacent to the church lead the eye across both axes of the image to the steeple. In this class we will focus on creating a unique architectural composition by cropping the image and closely focusing on one aspect of a scene.

Free registration for the lecture via Zoom here. When prompted, click to sign in as “attendee”.

This event will include live closed captions in both English and Spanish. English captions are available directly in the Zoom toolbar by clicking the “CC” icon. To access Spanish-language captioning, open Streamtext, where you can select “Spanish” to see the live captioning.

Para acceder a los subtítulos en varios idiomas, ingrese al seminario web de Zoom durante un evento en vivo, luego abra un navegador web separado para visitar esta página donde puede seleccionar “español” o el idioma de su elección.
