Virtual Art-Making Session with the Princeton University Art Museum: Rendering Clothing and Drapery

- 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 a Greek Statuette of Nike from the Hellenistic period. In this sculpture, the goddess of victory wears a clinging chiton with a long overfold that reveals the lines of her voluptuous body. A belt cinches the garment high under her breasts. In this class we will focus on the basic shapes of clothing and the anatomy of folds to better understand the mechanics of drapery.
