LIVE Drawn to Figures: First Ladies

OtherThursday, January 21, 2021, 11 am - 12 pm

Discover your inner artist in this live virtual drawing workshop. Facilitated by artist Jill Galloway, the workshop will include guided instruction on the techniques and challenges of figure drawing, and provide participants a chance to share their work at the end of the session. Each program will highlight exhibitions and themes from the National Portrait Gallery collection. Open to all skill levels, ages 18 and up.

Working with Gouache and Watercolors
In this lesson we will explore the difference between gouache and watercolor. Looking closely at the works of Boris Chaliapin in our new exhibition, Every Eye is Upon Me: First Ladies of the United States, we will set up a composition and compare the two mediums.
The supplies you'll need for this lesson are pencil, paper (watercolor paper if you have it), and either gouache or watercolors.
