In this six-week, small-group/in-person class, explore an expanded arsenal of drawing methods and materials to discover the limitless potential of drawing! Weekly assignments challenge students to encounter aspects of drawing that are fundamental to visual and critical thinking. Projects are aimed to develop drawings that stand alone or serve as part of a whole. Students are encouraged to discover and develop the means and abilities to conceive and build advanced projects as the class investigates the historical and contemporary significance of drawing.

Instructor David Shurbutt is an art and museum worker. He holds an undergraduate degree in studio art and graduate degrees in media arts and fine art. His creative output is interdisciplinary in the metamodern tradition.

Adult Studio

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.
