Drawing Workshops

Join us for sketching and conversation in the galleries. Led by practicing artists and museum educators, this series of workshops integrates art history and studio art practices. The workshops are designed for all skill levels; beginning and advanced participants are welcome. All drawing materials are provided. Ages 18 and over. For more information, e-mail drawingsalon@nga.gov.

This program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required due to limited space. Each topic is offered five times. Please choose one date per topic. Registration opens at noon on the Monday prior to the start of a new topic. If the link does not appear, refresh your Internet browser.
