Exercises include gesture drawing, contour and blind-contour drawing, tool-making, alternative surfaces, erasure, and drawing with the body. Participate in presentations, discussions, and group critiques, and make individual and group drawings in a fun and nonjudgmental atmosphere.

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes. To add your name to our Adult Studio mailing list, email Kristi McMillan, director of learning & engagement, or call 828.253.3227 x122.
