What you'll learn in this oil painting class:

This exciting class provides students with the unique opportunity to copy paintings and sculptures directly from originals in the galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Utilizing the Met's collection as a primary source of inspiration, students will engage in a deep dialogue with artists and artworks of the past while developing intensive technical study and problem solving skills. 

This long established practice has been crucial in the education of many of the greatest painters in history as they developed their technique and formed their styles. As participants are guided through the steps of painting or sculpting to recreate a masterpiece with all its colors and effects, we will aim to unveil the secrets of the old masters at one of the world's most amazing museums!

NOTE: There will be an orientation held on Wednesday February 19th, followed by eight copying sessions held on Tuesdays.There will be a culminating exhibition event on Friday April 24th at the Met Uris Center that copyists are encouraged, but not required, to attend.

As per request from the Met and in order to expedite the process, participants must submit the copying request form at the time of registration or soon after. Please find attached copying request form and class documents below.
