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 on paper, each week’s lesson in this series will be inspired by an artwork depicting a landscape in the Museum’s collections, inspired by the exhibition Traces on the Landscape at Art on Hulfish.
This live art-making class is inspired by this landscape painting by Zhang Daqian. In this session, we will paint our own version of Daqian’s painting while focusing on rendering foliage.
Materials list for this art-making class can be found here.
