Summer Studio: Drawing Week inspired by Edward Hopper for families

SAT, July 25, 2020
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

For families

Join Whitney educators for free weekly online art classes this summer. Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

Sharpen your pencils! This week, we will learn about drawing and sketching through the work of Edward Hopper, who created thousands of sketches of people and places throughout his life. He made drawings of buildings in his downtown New York neighborhood, views of the Atlantic Ocean, streets in Paris, and scenes of rural America. This class will teach you skills that you can use to create your own landscape drawings.

See all Summer Studio events, including programs for kids, teens, and families.

This event will have automated closed captions through Zoom. Live captioning is available for public programs and events upon request with seven business days advance notice. We will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made outside of that window of time. To place a request, please contact us at accessfeedback@whitney.org or (646) 666-5574 (voice). Relay and voice calls welcome.
