Studio Workshop

Responding to New York through Drawing, Printmaking, and Writing

How do you respond to New York, and how does art help you think about your environment? Begin by looking at the work of George Bellows, who used a variety of artistic processes to depict New York. Continue with drawing and writing exercises that explore New York's landscape through artworks in the collection and views of the city. End by using these exercises to make a simple print. In each session, contemporary artist Riccardo Vecchio introduces an art-making technique, while expert curators and educators help participants respond to their Museum experiences. This program is held in conjunction with the exhibition George Bellows.

This three-session workshop (January 20, 27, and February 3) meets in the Met's galleries and studios. All levels welcome. Space is limited. Purchase tickets below or at the Great Hall box office. Registration ends at noon on the Tuesday before the first day of the course. For more information, call 212-570-3961. Please call 212-570-3949 or visit the box office to receive student pricing.
