Figure Drawing Classes for Adults at the Mattatuck Museum

December 31, 2015

Waterbury, CT… The Mattatuck Museum is pleased to host monthly figure drawing sessions on Sundays, January 31, February 28 and March 20, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. All levels of artists are invited to the museum’s drop-in life drawing sessions. Led by Post University drawing and life drawing instructor and painter Sheri Schwartz, the museum will provide a nude figure model for a class devoted to exploring the fundamentals of capturing the figure, including chiaroscuro, gesture drawing, portraiture, proportion, and fore-shortening. Artists are invited to bring their own drawing materials and equipment. Short exercises and demonstration for the first 30 minutes will be followed by 2.5 hours of the model posing.


Schwartz earned her BFA in painting from Boston University and her MFA in painting from Western Connecticut State University and has exhibited her work throughout the region. For more information visit her website at Students are $10, museum members, $15, and non-members are $25.
