Family Drawing: Neapolitan Presepio


Price: Pay What You Wish

Join in with family and friends for a drawing workshop highlighting our Neapolitan presepio. The presepio is full of life with figures moving, interacting and celebrating. This drawing workshop will focus on capturing gestures in figure drawing.

Teaching artist Joke Slagle will lead participants in the exercise of imitating the poses of the presepio figures with their own bodies, and then guide participants in translating that movement into a sketch of the figure. No drawing experience necessary! Please come prepared with paper and a pencil.
