French Inspired Drawing
Includes Drawing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
March 14-16
Wednesday-Friday, 1:15–4:30 pm
Fee: $265
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 12 students

Wendy Shalen just returned from drawing in Paris for one month working mornings from the nude model and afternoons drawing at the Louvre.  This class will try to simulate part of that experience using the Metropolitan Museum’s drawing collection as inspiration. The workshop is open for all levels and will be working two days from the model and one day drawing from selected artwork in the Drawing Study Room of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  In the studio we will work from the nude or clothed model on toned paper creating limited color tonal drawings (aux trois crayons) in black, white and red using charcoal, or pierre noir, sanguine, white charcoal and Col-erase or pastel pencils.

Wendy Shalen is a highly acclaimed artist, whose work has been featured at numerous galleries, museums and private collections, including Abbot & Holder, London; Allan Stone Gallery, New York; The Katonah Museum of Art, New York; and The Housatonic Museum of Art, Connecticut. A graduate of Brandeis University (magna cum laude), Wendy Shalen studied at the Art Students League with Daniel Greene, Harvey Dinnerstein and Robert Beverly Hale, and privately with Burton Silverman.
