Saturdays, March 1 and March 15, 5:00–7:15 p.m.
We are pleased to offer Members at the Sustaining ($550) level and above the opportunity to register for this special program.
Join artist and Museum Educator Barbara Woods on Saturday evenings to discover the way artists have portrayed friends, family, and patrons throughout the centuries. Then try your hand at creating your own portrait.
The first session will take place in the New European Paintings Galleries, 1250–1800 and the second session in Modern and Contemporary Art. All materials will be provided. After sketching in the galleries, participants will enjoy wine and cheese in a private space in the Members Dining Room.
Participants will meet in the Balcony Lounge at 5:00 p.m. and leave promptly at 5:15 p.m. for the galleries. No experience necessary!
The March 1 session is now sold out, but tickets to the March 15 event may still be available. Please contact Lisa Doyle at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-570-3793 for more information.
