Free Virtual Art-Making with the Princeton University Art Museum – Drawing Animals from the Collections | Watercolor Pencils: Depicting a Jaguar

February 16, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Arts Council of Princeton partners with the Princeton University Art Museum to provide free virtual art-making classes. Weekly classes are taught by ACP artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom. With an emphasis on drawing with watercolor pencil on paper, each week’s lesson in this series will be inspired by an artwork depicting an animal in the Museum’s collections.

This live-artmaking class is inspired by this ceramic stirrup-spout vessel in the form of a jaguar, created by a Mochica artist on what is now the northern coast of Peru. In this session, we will draw the jaguar as it is depicted in this object.

Free registration 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.

Materials list for drawing classes can be found here.
