  • Receive tailor-made, encouraging one-on-one expert art instruction in drawing
  • Are inspired by the MET museum’s life-size sculptures, master paintings, and interior spaces such as Egyptian Temples and views of Central Park

  • Explore and practice drawing class techniques, such as: composition, shading, depth, line, dimension, and your own unique self-expression
  • Enjoy a weekly escape in this stunning museum as you draw and create art
  • Receive the lasting benefits of drawing, such as relaxation, stress relief, and mental clarity

Q: Are materials provided and included in cost of the class? 
A: No. Materials and admission are not included. You will need to purchase your museum ticket and bring the following materials: 
  • 12” x 18” drawing paper (do not purchase newsprint) 
  • Drawing Pencils 4H, 2H, HB, 2B, and 4B 
  • Kneaded gum eraser (looks like a gray gum-like square)

 Yes, canvases can be purchased at the following prices: 11 x 14 for $8 and 16 x 20 for $10.

Q: Can I make up a class if I miss one? 
Unfortunately, we do not offer any makeups for classes missed. However, if you want to get the most from the course and the absence, you can tell the instructor when you will be absent ahead of time and the instructor can provide some guidance on exercises to practice while away.

Q: Is the room air conditioned? 
A: Yes, rooms are air conditioned when appropriate.

Q: Can I bring a friend to accompany me and watch?
A: No, unfortunately the class has limited space and all seats must be paid for.

Q: What is the dress code for this class? 
A: There is no dress code for this class, but keep in mind this is an art studio with wet paintings on the wall, so do not wear anything super nice or something that you don't want to risk getting ruined.

Really enjoyed the class. Good intro to drawing and inspiring place to learn from the Masters in an amazing museum. Due to class size, when everyone attends class, you get little one on one time but some classes I got to spend a lot of time with the instructor who was very personable and knowledgeable. Definitely worth doing for overall experience.
