Virtual Art-Making Session with the Princeton University Art Museum: Capturing a Winter Scene

- 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 Charles Ephraim Burchfield’s Winter Rain from the East. Broadly painted in ghostly tones of gray and brown, Burchfield’s watercolors of obsolete farms and forgotten towns on the outskirts of Buffalo, New York—where the artist lived and worked—capture a poignant sense of loneliness. In this class we will focus on techniques of drawing a winter scene, including line, shadow, perspective, and tone.
