Next Family Program: October 20

In October we’ll visit Tyrone Geter’s solo exhibition, I Come as One, but Stand as 10,000, to explore the artist’s approach to figure drawing. After experimenting with a variety of charcoal techniques and drawing exercises in the gallery, we will head back to the studio to revise, embellish, and rework our sketches.
