Portrait Drawing: Suggesting More by Drawing Less

  • Saturday, December 11, 2021

Guided by local artist and teacher Maud Taber-Thomas

Join us in exploring what artists include—and don’t include—in their portraits, drawing not only from the National Gallery’s collection but also from live models.

Experimenting is encouraged! All you need are five sheets of paper, an eraser, and a pencil or vine charcoal.
