Artists have been sketching in museums for centuries--using the practice to develop their skills and learn from the artists that came before them. Sketching in museums isn’t just for artists though. It is a great way to unwind, shift your mental gears, and see works of art more clearly and more deeply.
This month in celebration of The Big Draw, the world’s largest celebration of drawing that takes place across the globe, spend some time sketching works of art from the Snite Museum’s collections.
For our sketching friends on campus
This week during our open hours grab a few sheets of blank paper and a pencil and head over to the Museum to find your favorite work of art to sketch or explore a bit and discover a new work to spend time with.
