For centuries aspiring artists learned to make art by copying the masters in museums. Observing great works of art and trying to replicate a master artist’s line, form, and texture can be an excellent way to hone one’s own skills. Even today visitors to the National Gallery in Washington can observe students drawing and painting copies of Whistler, Sargent, Cassatt, and many other renowned artists. However, budding artists in South Central Virginia don’t have to travel all the way to Washington.
Our Drawing in the Galleries program invites artists young and old, experienced and aspiring, to recreate the art on display at the LCVA. We’ll provide everything you need!
